Euclid is a space-based survey mission from the European Space Agency designed to understand the origin of the Universe's accelerating expansion. It will use cosmological probes to investigate the nature of dark energy, dark matter and gravity by tracking their observational signatures on the geometry of the universe and on the cosmic history of structure formation. The mission is optimised for two independent primary cosmological probes: Weak gravitational Lensing (WL) and Baryonic Acoustic… 
Euclid: ESA's mission to map the geometry of the dark universe
Euclid is a space-borne survey mission developed and operated by ESA. It is designed to understand the origin of the Universe's accelerating expansion. Euclid will use cosmological probes to
The Euclid mission design
Euclid is a space-based optical/near-infrared survey mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) to investigate the nature of dark energy, dark matter and gravity by observing the geometry of the
Management of the science ground segment for the Euclid mission
The management challenges that the Euclid SGS is facing while dealing with such complexity are described, related to the organisation of a geographically distributed software development team.
Mission-level performance verification approach for the Euclid space mission
ESA's Dark Energy Mission Euclid will map the 3D matter distribution in our Universe using two Dark Energy probes: Weak Lensing (WL) and Galaxy Clustering (GC). The extreme accuracy required for both
Euclid preparation
The analysis of weak gravitational lensing in wide-field imaging surveys is considered to be a major cosmological probe of dark energy. Our capacity to constrain the dark energy equation of state
Solar System Science with ESA Euclid
Evaluating Euclid capability to discover SSOs, and measure their position, apparent magnitude, and SED, and estimating how Euclid will constrain the SSOs dynamical, physical, and compositional properties is evaluated.
Understanding galaxy formation and evolution through an all-sky submillimetre spectroscopic survey
Abstract We illustrate the extraordinary discovery potential for extragalactic astrophysics of a far-infrared/submillimetre (far-IR/submm) all-sky spectroscopic survey with a 3-m-class space
VIS: the visible imager for Euclid
Euclid-VIS is a large format visible imager under investigation for the ESA Euclid space mission in their Cosmic Vision program. Together with the near infrared photometer (NIP) it forms the basis of
Preliminary results on the EUCLID NISP stray-light and ghost analysis
The EUCLID mission within the European Space Agencies 2015 - 2025 Cosmic Vision framework addresses cosmological questions related to dark matter and dark energy. EUCLID is equipped with two
Performance measurement of high precision optical assemblies for cosmological observations: comparison of different approaches
Euclid is the name of a space telescope currently being developed in the framework of the ESA Cosmic Vision 2015- 2025 Program [1], [2]. It addresses cosmological questions related to dark matter and
