MaxE Project Update
The MaxE project was established to provide a spectrograph on SALT for the rapid identification and follow-up of transient events.
A diverse team is working on the design of a red arm to be added to the existing RSS spectrograph that will provide wider simultaneous spectral coverage – 360 nm to 900nm – than is currently possible.
This discussion is the first of a series of regular updates on the status and progress of all aspects of the project – science, optics, opto-mechanics, detector subsystem, systems engineering and project management.
