Bcool Observations


The Bcool project is mainly driven by high-resolution spectropolarimetric observations aimed at measuring Zeeman-induced polarization in spectral lines.

Our favourite instruments

Bcool spectropolarimetric observations are collected with three high-resolution échelle spectropolarimeters : ESPaDOnS at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (Hawaii, USA), NARVAL at the Télescope Bernard Lyot (Pic du Midi, France) and to a lesser extent HARPSpol at ESO 3.6m Telescope (La Silla, Chile).
