Abstract

Fundamental discoveries in solar physics rely on advances of instrumentation. This includes observations that advance the state of the art in resolution and cadence, and open new wavelength domains. NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology) has built, and now operates the highest-resolution solar telescope ever built − the Goode Solar Telescope (GST, formerly the New Solar Telescope, NST) at Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), California. This 1.6-meter clear aperture, off-axis GST is the first facility class solar telescope built in the U.S. in a generation and will dominate U.S. ground-based solar observations until the 4-meter DKIST comes online. Benefitting from the long periods of local excellent seeing at Big Bear Lake, the GST, equipped with high-order adaptive optics (AO), routinely collects diffraction-limited spatial resolution (~ 0.1") photometric, spectroscopic and/or polarimetric data, with a high cadence, across the spectrum from 0.4 - 5.0 μm. Since its regular operation in 2010, it has provided the community with open access to observations of the photosphere, chromosphere and up to the base of the corona with the unprecedented resolution, targeting at the fundamental nature of solar activity and the origin of space weather. This presentation reviews the process of design, construction and commissioning of the GST, and reports the up-to-date progress on its next generation instruments including the AO systems (AO-308, GLAO & MCAO), the Near-InfraRed Imaging Spectro-polarimeter (NIRIS), the Visible Imaging Spectrometer (VIS), the Broad-band Filter Imager (BFI), and the Cryogenic Infrared Spectrograph (CYRA). Some significant scientific results from GST will be highlighted.
