Instrumentation projects presented at SPIE
My group is involved in two instrumentation projects that presented updates at the recent SPIE conference:
- the ANDES spectrograph for the ELT, where we at the AIP are responsible for the design and the construction of its UBV arm;
- and ARCUS, a concept for a high spectral resolution X-ray space telescope, where I am involved in the exoplanet science goals.
The SPIE proceedings for both projects can be found here:
