The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is the next generation ground-based observatory for gamma-ray astronomy at very-high energies (from 20 GeV to > 100 TeV). With over 100 telescopes located in two sites in the northern and southern hemispheres, CTA will be the world's largest and most sensitive high-energy gamma-ray observatory ever built. Spain will host the CTA-North observatory at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (ORM), in the Canary island of La Palma.
The gamma-ray astrophysics group at IFAE is playing a leading role in the ongoing construction of the first of the four large-size telescopes of CTA-North, dubbed LST-1, equipped with a 23-m diameter dish,that is in its construction phase, and will start operations at the ORM during 2018. In particular, IFAE is in charge of the integration and validation of the camera before its installation in the telescope.
