“SPIROU at Pic du Midi” (SPIP) is an infrared spectropolarimeter (1-2.4µm) specialising in the study of exoplanets orbiting in the habitable zone around young, low-mass stars.
SPIP, like its big brother SPIRou at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, will study the birth of planetary systems and the crucial importance of magnetic fields in the formation process of baby stars and planets. SPIP will be installed at the “Pic du Midi” Observatory in the French Pyrenese mountain range.
