The E-ELT Multi-Object Spectrograph: latest news from MOSAIC

Abstract:

There are 8000 galaxies, including 1600 at z≥ 1.6, which could be simultaneously observed in an E-ELT field of view of 40 arcmin^2. A considerable fraction of astrophysical discoveries require large statistical samples, which can only be obtained with multi-object spectrographs (MOS). MOSAIC will provide a vast discovery space, enabled by a multiplex of 200 and spectral resolving powers of R=5000 and 20000. MOSAIC will also offer the unique capability of more than 10 `high-def...
