Enabling large optical systems capable of resolving and measuring faint sources not accessible with current remote sensing instruments and detectors is the scientific overarching aim of LIOM by creating and sustain an excellent ERA Chairs optics and photonics' technology group of experimental physicists and astronomers, engineers, and technicians with an innovative optics and photonics technology environment. Under the leadership of the outstanding researcher and research manager Prof. Jeffrey Kuhn we
aim to build a collaboration that will lead to the development of the next 50 years of astronomical telescopes - be they on the ground, space, or the moon.
