2022 - In the Spirit of Lyot

- , 23:30

In the Spirit of Lyot is an international conference about the breakthrough science and technical innovation of high-contrast imaging, named after the French astronomer Bernard Lyot, who invented the solar coronagraph, which demonstrated the spirit of ingenuity in both science with technology. The goal of the conference is to create an environment that will bring together instrumentalists and research astronomers who might naturally attend separate conferences. The conference will produce rare opportunities for synergy and cross-fertilization between current ground-based high-contrast programs (GDPS, LYOT, & NICI), planned extreme AO programs (GPI & VLT-SPHERE) and future telescopes (TMT, JWST, TPF ). More information will follow soon.
