Paper Abstract

A spectrometric and spectropolarimetric visible light Lyot coronagraph are scheduled for launch in 1995 on the ESA/NASA Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) mission. The Lyot coronagraph is one of three coronagraph optical trains contained in the NASA sponsored large angle spectrometric coronagraph (LASCO) which will be used to study the emission line, electron, and dust components of the solar corona within a 30 solar diameter field of view. This talk focuses on the spectrometric and polarimetric capabilities of the Lyot optical train which covers the inner solar corona from 1.1 - 3.0 solar radii.
