The POLISH2 optical polarimeter has been in operation at the Lick Observatory 3-m Shane telescope since 2011, and it was commissioned at the Gemini North 8-m in 2016. This instrument primarily targets exoplanets, asteroids, and the Crab pulsar, but it has also been used for a wide variety of planetary, galactic, and supernova science. POLISH2’s photoelastic modulators, employed instead of rotating waveplates or ferro-electric liquid crystal modulators, offer the unprecedented ability to achieve… 


The Future of Photometric, Spectrophotometric and Polarimetric Standardization

The OmegaCAM wide-field imager will start operations at the ESO VLT Survey Telescope at Paranal in 2007. The photometric calibration of OmegaCAM data depends on standard-star measurements that cover
