" EVE: Wide Field medium resolution multi-object spectroscopy for the E_ELT "

Gavin Dalton

(Oxford University/Rutherford Appleton Laboratory)

The primary aim of the E-ELT design is to provide facility adaptive optics as the basic mode of operation of the telescope. However, simulations suggest that this mode may only be utilised for ~50% of the available observting time. EVE is an instrument concept to work with medium resolution spectroscopy (R~5000-30000) in the visible and NIR over the widest field of view accessible to the E-ELT to provide a workhorse facility instrument that can begin science from first light in natural- or GLAO-assisted seeing conditions. This talk will discuss the instrument concept design, the major scientific objectives, and a possible precursor instrument for an existing 4m-class telescope. I will conclude with a brief summary of the current status of the VISTA telescope.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
