Performance of the CTA Large Size Telescope — •Martin Will for the CTA collaboration — Max-Planck-Institut für Physik, München
The Large Size Telescope (LST) is the largest of the several sizes of telescopes that will comprise the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). With its reflective surface of 23 meter diameter, the LST is optimized to detect gamma rays in the energy range between 20 and 200 GeV. The use of light weight materials to construct the telescope is crucial for very fast repositioning and follow-up of transients. In 2019, operations of the LST prototype in the Canary island of La Palma have started as part of the telescope commissioning. In this presentation, some results on the performance evaluation as well as some preliminary data on the Crab Nebula gamma-ray source will be presented.
