The European Solar Telescope (EST) project foresees the realization of a 4 - meter solar telescope, characterized by an optical design and by a suite of instruments optimized for spectropolarimetric measurements from near infrared to near UV. The aperture, the site at the Canary Islands, the adaptive optics and the multi conjugate adaptive optics for extended sources integrated along the optical path, the set of instruments and the post facto image processing techniques, will allow us to study the interaction between the plasma and the magnetic field in the solar atmosphere at resolutions comparable to the photon mean free path in the photosphere. EST will be operational contemporarily to major ESA and NASA space missions for the study of the Sun and of its activity.

Abstract

The European Solar Telescope (EST) project foresees the realization of a 4 - meter solar telescope, characterized by an optical design and by a suite of instruments optimized for spectropolarimetric measurements from near infrared to near UV. The aperture, the site at the Canary Islands, the adaptive optics and the multi conjugate adaptive optics for extended sources integrated along the optical path, the set of instruments and the post facto image processing techniques, will allow us to study the interaction between the plasma and the magnetic field in the solar atmosphere at resolutions comparable to the photon mean free path in the photosphere. EST will be operational contemporarily to major ESA and NASA space missions for the study of the Sun and of its activity.
