Paper Abstract

EST is a project for a 4-meter class telescope to be located in the Canary Islands. EST will be optimized for studies of the magnetic coupling between the photosphere and the chromosphere. This requires high spatial and temporal resolution diagnostics tools of properties of the plasma, by using multiple wavelength spectropolarimetry. To achieve these goals, visible and near-IR multi-purpose spectrographs are being designed to be compatible with different modes of use: LsSS (Long-slit Standard Spectrograph), multi-slit multi-wavelength spectrograph with an integral field unit, TUNIS (Tunable Universal Narrow-band Imaging Spectrograph), and new generation MSDP (Multi-channel Subtractive Double-pass Spectrograph). In this contribution, these different instrumental configurations are described.
