Call for the next generation of instruments for the GTC

 

 


icon Summary

 

By 1 December 2018, we have received up to five "Concept papers" for new science instruments for the GTC. At the conference VI meeting on Science with GTC, there will be a special session with oral presentations of these Concept Papers to conduct a general discussion on the different designs described.

On the next table, a summary of the new instruments proposed is given:
