Call for proposals 2015

First GREGOR observing campaign under SOLARNET ACCESS in May 2015:

Within theSOLARNET transnational ACCESS program ( ) we - for the first time - invite proposals for observing campaigns at GREGOR in May 2015. GREGOR is a 1.5 meter on-axis solar telescope at the Observatorio del Teide in Tenerife, and is presently equipped with an infrared spectropolarimeter (GRIS), a dual Fabry-Perot spectrometer (GFPI), and an additional imaging channel.

We will allocate 25-30 observing days at GREGOR in May 2015 within the SOLARNET ACCESS program. For these campaigns one of our scientists will serve as an observing assistant. We offer GRIS (with a spectral range of 0.4 nm in the 1 and 1.5 micron windows, scanning a field of view of approx. 60'' by 60''), its slit jaw imaging system, or the GFPI in its spectroscopic mode (spectral resolution of 250 000, field of view 50'' by 38'' in Fe I at 617.3nm). In both cases, an additional imaging system with two cameras can be used.

Proposal Form


Proposals should be sent via email to and must be received by March 6, 2015. For questions on GREGOR, its instrumentation, and on the proposal, please contact Rolf Schlichenmaier ( as soon as possible. The proposals will be evaluated based on scientific merit. Eligibility: The proposal PI and more than half of the Co-Is must be affiliated with an institute in EU or associated EU countries, but non-Spanish and non-German.

SOLARNET is a European Integrated Initiative funded through FP7, which brings together and integrates the major European research infrastructures in the field of high-resolution solar physics ( ). This includes the European Solar telescopes SST, THEMIS, GREGOR & VTT in the Canary Islands, as well as European instruments IBIS and ROSA installed at DST/NSO. SOLARNET support includes travel grants for observing campaigns.
