ZTF Experiments

In the last year of operations, ZTF will run a series of monthly "ZTF experiments". These are 3-night projects, that will explore new scientific opportunities via novel observing modes that are different from routine operations. These can include changes to the cadence, filters, field selection, integration times, etc. While only members of the ZTF collaboration can propose a ZTF experiments, the alerts from each will be publicly available. Check below to view more information about past and upcoming experiments.
