Abstract: Chinese solar community has proposed a next generation ground-based solar telescope , The Chinese Giant Solar Telescope (CGST). CGST is an infrared and optical telescope whose basic objective is to resolve fundamental magnetic structure of Sun at the level of ∼20 km in the wavelength of 1 micron. The preliminary design of CGST includes an 8-meter aperture, with light-gathering power equivalent to a 5-meter aperture. The details are given in this talk.
