10 July 2018 An innovative far UV telescope for space weather and solar variability studies (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
SUAVE (Solar Ultraviolet Advanced Variability Experiment) is a far UV imaging solar telescope (Lyman Alpha, 121.6 nm, Herzberg continuum, 200-220 nm, etc.) of novel design for ultimate thermal stability and long lasting performances. SUAVE is a 80 mm Ritchey-Chrétien off-axis telescope with SiC mirrors and no entrance window for long and uncompromised observations in the UV (no coatings of mirrors, flux limited to less than 2 solar constants on filters to avoid degradation), associated with an ultimate thermal control (no central obscuration resulting in limited thermal gradients and easier heat evacuation, focus control, stabilization). Design and anticipated performances will be detailed as well as the realization process under way. Tests on a representative breadboard will be performed in 2018 (CNES R&T). SUAVE is the main instrument of the SUITS/SWUSV (Solar Ultraviolet Influence on Troposphere/Stratosphere / Space Weather and Ultraviolet Solar Variability) microsatellite mission.
