MICADO – First Light Instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT)

by Roland Wagner, RICAM Apart from METIS, our group in Linz is also involved in the development of MICADO, the Multi-AO Imaging Camera for Deep Observations of the E-ELT. The consortium behind MICADO is led by the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics  (MPE). What is MICADO? The name MICADO is well-known in a slightly different spelling, Mikado, as a pick-up sticks game. Within the European ELT, MICADO is an imaging instrument focusing on high presicion astrometry and spectroscopy. Optimised for imaging at the diffraction limit in H, J and K band (0.8-2.4 microns) with high … [Read More...]
