Science verification of SAM: call for proposals

1

Deadline for proposals: March 15, 2013

The SOAR Adaptive Module (SAM is a laser guide star adaptive optics
system that improves natural seeing at the 4.1-m SOAR telescope. The
instrument is equipped with a CCD imager (pixel scale 0.045 arcsec,
field of view 3 arcmin). SAM commissioning is almost complete, and we
are ready to begin Science Verification (SV) testing as a final step
prior to offering SAM on a shared risk basis in Semester 2013B.

Through this call for proposals (CfP), we solicit proposals for short
(<0.5 night) science projects which could be executed as part of this
SV testing process. This solicitation is open to investigators from
all SOAR partners including the US, Brazilian and Chilean open access
communities
