Paper Abstract

This communication shows the feasibility study of a new instrument designed for the 4 meter European Solar Telescope (EST) for high resolution spectro-polarimetric observations. This paper is specifically focused on the spectrographs that allow the simultaneous observation of 5 visible and 4 near-infrared wavelengths (complying with the science requirements), with 8 entrance slits of 200arcsec each fed by an integral field unit covering an area on the solar surface of 9 x 9 arcsec2.
