We report on the status of the new high-resolution spectrograph CAOS under construction for the 0.91m telescope at Serra La Nave, Italy. Starting from defined scientific motivations, we derived the best instrumental requirements to meet observational goals within typical constraints like good performances and reduced overall cost. The new instrument will be able to enlarge present observational research activity at INAF-OACt, allowing spectropolarimetry at high S/N ratios.

Abstract

We report on the status of the new high-resolution spectrograph CAOS under construction for the 0.91m telescope at Serra La Nave, Italy. Starting from defined scientific motivations, we derived the best instrumental requirements to meet observational goals within typical constraints like good performances and reduced overall cost. The new instrument will be able to enlarge present observational research activity at INAF-OACt, allowing spectropolarimetry at high S/N ratios.
