Ten MilliArcsecond (TMAS) camera TWiki


TMAS is a simple visible-light imager system to enable high-angular-resolution science with PALM-3000. It consists of a high-speed 1k x 1k Andor EMCCD camera (borrowed, for now), an optional k x 1k science-grade staring array (known as Palomar CCD21) which would provide higher sensitivity, and an optional fiber output port for precision RV spectroscopy tests. It integrates an atmospheric dispersion corrector (ADC) and dual filter wheels.

Project Status

TMAS is in development phase and is expected to be ready for on-sky testing in 2012B.


TMAS is a Caltech collaboration with scientists from JPL. The co-PI's are Drs Sergi Hildebrandt and Richard Dekany, Caltech.
