Paper Abstract

The mission of the ATST visible spectro-polarimeter (ViSP) is to provide precision measurements of the full state of polarization (Stokes parameters) simultaneously at diverse wavelengths in the visible spectrum and fully resolve (or nearly so) the profiles of spectrum lines originating in the solar atmosphere. We present the instrument science requirements, their flow down to instrument specifications, and a preliminary ViSP design. The ViSP spectrograph allows for reconfiguration while maintaining an immediately selectable configuration. We describe how the ViSP will utilize the ATST polarimetry facility.
