4MOST and future synergies with HRMOS

Oct 20, 2021, 11:45 AM

4MOST is a spectroscopic survey facility that will be placed on the Vista telescope on Paranal in Chile. It will be able to simultaneously obtain spectra for about 2400 objects, 800 at a resolution of about R~20000, and 1600 at a resolution of about R~5000. I will give a brief overview of the 4MOST science cases and give a few possible examples where follow-up observations with a high-resolution multi-fibre spectrograph like HRMOS could be invaluable.
