摘要：LAMOST survey is a spectroscopic survey started since 2011. Until 2019, it has observed over 10 million low-resolution (R~1800) stellar spectra, half of which have stellar parameters been estimated, with limiting magnitude of around r=17.8 mag. With such a large volume of data, we are able to study the structure and evolution of the Milky Way, many interesting stellar objects, and finding stellar size black holes. I will highlight some interesting results came out of LAMOST data in the first part of my talk.
Since 2018, LAMOST survey has started the second stage with upgraded medium-resolution (R~7500) spectrographs. Unlike the low-resolution survey, the medium-resolution survey (MRS) concentrates more on stellar physics, including the evolution of binary stars, variable stars and so on. According to the new scientific goals, MRS becomes a pioneering time-domain medium-resolution spectroscopic survey. When the survey ends in 2023, we expect it will observe more than 200 thousands stars with averagely 50 epochs for each object. I will talk about the details of the science plans, survey strategies, and some preliminary results.
