The Roman Coronagraph will be able to perform high-contrast scattered light observations of extended sources in intensity and measure their linear polarization fraction per resolution element. We will summarize the concept of operations for polarimetric observations, illustrate the sensitivity to debris disks, and summarize prospects for a highly-sensitive survey of scattered light from exozodiacal disks as a precursor to future high-contrast missions.

Speaker: Ewan Douglas (University of Arizona - Steward)

Speaker: Bertrand Mennesson (JPL)


The Roman Lecture Series is a monthly virtual lecture series focused on the scientific capabilities and technology of the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope, organized by Roman Mission partners.
