Lund Observatory Seminar Series
SELTIC, Swedish engagement in ELT instrumentation
Speaker: Göran Östlin, Stockholm Univeristy.
ESO is currently building the largest optical/NIR telescope in the world. No telescope is complete without an instrumentation suite. In his talk Göran Östlin will tell us about the instrumentation plans for the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT). He will in particular focus on the Swedish participation in two of the instruments, ANDES and MOSAIC. The Swedish participation is coordinated in the SELTIC consortium, which is lead by Stockholm University, and of which Lund University is a member. The talk will highlight work so far, the current status, and a the road ahead and the possibilities for astronomers in Sweden to engage in this work.
After the talk we will be serving tea and coffee in the foyer outside the Lundmark Lecture Hall.
