Goal of the Workshop

POLLUX is a high-resolution UV spectropolarimeter for the LUVOIR space mission, one of the four Decadal Survey Mission Concept Studies lead by NASA. POLLUX is supported by CNES and developed by a European consortium.

During this workshop we plan to discuss the status of the chapter presenting POLLUX, that will be attached to the interim report to be submitted to NASA early December 2017. We will review the science case for POLLUX, the status of the instrument design, and the needed technology developments.

Expected Participants

All science WG leaders, Payload WP leaders, and CNES members working on the project are expected to attend this workshop. Would any of them not be available, they should plan for a replacement within their WG/WP/team. Key engineers or scientists working on the project are also welcome, as well as representatives from the NASA LUVOIR team.
