November 2021: Polarization Calibration of the Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) with presenter Stacey Sueoka
Monthly speakers explore topics derived from Henri Poincaré’s work on optical polarization and demonstrate applications of polarization techniques. This month's title is Polarization Calibration of the Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) with presenter Stacey Sueoka.

Join the series’ chairs and moderators – Thomas A. Germer, National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA); Jessica C. Ramella-Roman, Florida International University (USA); and Tatiana Novikova, École Polytechnique (France) – and be part of the discussion.

Title: Polarization Calibration of the Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST)
Speaker: Stacey Sueoka
National Solar Observatory, AURA

Abstract: The Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope is the largest solar telescope to date, ending its construction phase on 20 November 2021. DKIST has multiple spectropolarimeters that will perform solar disk, limb and coronal observations. The talk will discuss the approach taken to provide polarization calibration of the optical system. This includes developing the polarization model, performing polarization measurements of countless optical samples, and the implementation of the NSO Coude Laboratory Spectropolarimeter (NCSP), a custom metrology tool utilized to provide the first telescope system polarization calibration through the optical path shared by all the instruments.

Stacey Sueoka received her PhD in Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona’s Wyant College of Optical Sciences. She studied under the mentorship of Dr. Russell Chipman in the Polarization Lab. Over the last 5 years she has supported the design, testing, and integration of the polarization calibration system and optical elements of the Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST). She is now in charge of the optical engineering team at DKIST, ensuring not only polarization calibration but also the optical system performance of the telescope.
