The Dunlap Institute’s annual, five-day summer school provides an introduction to cutting-edge astronomical instrumentation for current and future telescope facilities.
The school is designed around both lecture and interactive laboratory activities led by astronomers from around the world who specialize in the development of astronomical instruments. The program will introduce students to the basic principles of optics and detectors, as well as to advanced topics in instrument design and development. It includes a focus on laboratory, computer and data acquisition skills.
Who should attend?
We encourage applications from senior undergraduates and graduate students with an interest in the development of new astronomical instruments and how to use them for answering the most fundamental questions about the Universe. The school is designed for students with a background in astronomy, physics, or engineering, but participants do not require a background in instrumentation.
