Julien Girard (ESO) — VLT(I) Adaptive Optics Review : AO science machines from NACO to SPHERE and beyond

Vendredi 7 juillet 11:00-12:00 - Amphi

Abstract : During this talk I will review past, current and future adaptive optics fed instruments at the Very Large Telescope, the challenge they represent from a science operations perspective. How do we maintain, calibrate and sometimes improve them ? What diagnostics tools and metrics are key ? How can we best prepare the 3rd generation VLT instruments and the ELT ? I will focus on NACO and SPHERE, the two instruments I supported as Instrument Scientist between 2009 and 2017. I will show some of their scientific highlights as well as original operations modes which can be game changers and open new parameter spaces, new science niches and opportunities !
