13 July 2018 Stray light and thermal self-emission minimization at the ELT
Author Affiliations +
We analyze the principal sources of thermal self-emission (TSE) in the European Southern Telescope (ELT) as they will be seen by the instruments observing in the infrared. Expected TSE levels for different mirror contamination levels and instrument cold stop types are provided.
