" Science and Instrumentation for the Thirty Meter Telescope "

Luc Simard

(TMT Project / National Research Council of Canada)


The Thirty-Meter Telescope is being designed by an international team of scientists and engineers to provide diffraction-limited images and spectra that will be highly synergistic with the James Webb Space Telescope and other facilities such as ALMA. The design is in an advanced stage, and a wide range of project-activities are underway. It will open up a new and exciting realm of astronomical explorations from our Solar System to the so-called First Light objects that formed soon after the Big Bang. This talk will describe the science and instrumentation of this extremely large telescope.


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