Design requirements

CAOS will have to be a high efficiency, high-resolution, fiber fed optical spectrograph with high stability and complete spectral coverage in one exposure. The main design requirements of the spectrograph are given below:

Both integral light mode and polarimetric mode will feed two fibers for simultaneous measurements of source+sky or two indipendent polarimetric components, respectevely.
