We describe the optical systems of the telescope and spectro-polarimeter for the SOT experiment. The SOT experiment will allow one to carry out observations of magnetic fields and the plasma state in UV lines (λλ = 90–240 nm) for various solar formations with a spatial resolution of 0.1–0.2".
Keywords: magnetic fields, plasma, solar formations
