The international society for optics and photonics (SPIE) is organising its annual Astronomical telescopes and instrumentation Symposium. This year, the event is held as a digital forum from 14 to 18 December, 2020. With the exception of some live plenaries, most sessions will be available on demand for registered participants.
X-IFU Consortium members are participating in this event with presentations and posters showing the latest developments of the instrument. You can find them in the section “Space telescopes and instrumentation 2020: Ultraviolet to Gamma Ray (Conference 11444)”.
We are listing below all X-IFU-related contributions to the SPIE 2020.
