STARLAB: An Ultraviolet/Optical Space Telescope

  • Ian R. Tuohy


Mount Stromlo and Siding Spring Observatories are actively developing large format photon counting detectors suitable for operation in space over a broad wavelength range. It is intended that these detectors be used in the Scientific Instrument Package of the STARLAB telescope. A description is given of the STARLAB facility, with emphasis on the contribution being made by Australia.
