  • LLNL engineer Vincent Riot (left), who has worked on the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) for more than a decade and been the full camera project manager since 2017, and LLNL optical engineer Justin Wolfe, the LSST camera optics subsystems manager, stand in front of the LSST main lens assembly. The visible upper lens is believed to be the world’s largest optical lens with a diameter of 1.57 meters (5.1 feet) and the second lens below has a diameter of 1.2 meters. These two lenses and a smaller third one, planned for the LSST under construction in Chile, were designed by LLNL researchers and built by Lab industrial partners.
