Abstract

The Southern Spectroscopic Survey Telescope (SSST) is a planned multi-wavelength space survey telescope by China located in Chile. In this paper, we present a feasible optic system design based on wide-field Cassegrain corrector configuration for the SSST of China. Our recommended design has a large field of view (FOV) of $ {2.4^ \circ } \times {2.4^ \circ } $ with its image spot size less than 0.3 arcsec in diameter for its full FOV in 80% encircled energy. The atmospheric dispersion effect and actual science requirements are taken into consideration. In addition, a trade-off study is presented. This paper can also provide a reference to the next generation of spectroscopic survey telescopes.
