Abstract

We review the need for technology developments to meet the science cases that have been assembled for optical and infrared telescopes from 20 to 100 metres. Novel technologies can make an impact on the scientific capabilities of these ELTs, make them more affordable and decrease the operating costs. We consider those technologies highlighted by design studies and technology roadmapping exercises on both sides of the Atlantic, with particular emphasis on instrumentation. We do not consider adaptive optics (AO), which is covered by Ellerbroek & Hubin (this volume). Finally, we recommend a joint technology development programme to enable a world-wide suite of ELTs to be built.
