Description

The ExoLife Finder is made of a large ring of small primary mirrors to achieve high angular spatial resolution with the main scientific objective of studying the atmospheres of exoplanets to look for biomarkers. ELF will work as an interferometer to remove the central bright star to reveal the close exoplanet.

The mini-ELF telescope consists of an array of 15 off-axis 0.5-m telescopes from a common parent parabola, arranged in a circle of 3.5-m in diameter. miniELF is a project that is part of IACTEC's "Large Telescopes" with the Cherenkov Telescope Array, the European Solar Telescope, and the New Robotic Telescope.
