AntarctiCor: Solar Coronagraph in Antarctica for the ESCAPE Project

Abstract : The Antarctica solar coronagraph –AntarctiCor– for the “Ex- treme Solar Coronagraphy Antarctic Program Experiment” –ESCAPE– comprises an internally-occulted coronagraph based on the externally-occulted ASPIICS coro- nagraph for the ESA formation-flying PROBA-3 mission. This paper describes the AntarctiCor design for ground-based observations from the DomeC Antarctica plateau of the polarized broad-band (591 nm ± 5 nm) K-corona and of the narrow- band (FWHM = 0.5 nm), polarized emission of the coronal green-line at 530.3 nm. The science goal of these observations is to map the topology and dynamics of the coronal magnetic field, addressing coronal heating and space weather questions.
