The aim of the research is to design a spectrometer which is an important aspect of the SULIS (Solar cUbesats for Linked Imagining Spectropolarimetry) space expedition concept which will observe the sun’s atmosphere.  

The data collected will be important in order to estimate the sun’s atmospheric properties, such as temperature and density, helping to answer the complex question: why is the sun’s atmosphere so much hotter than its surface?

This is one of the biggest questions in astronomy
