The European Solar Telescope (EST) is a joint project of several European research institutes to design and realize a 4-m class solar telescope. The EST Broad Band Imager is one of the baseline instruments of EST. It will obtain diffraction limited images over the full field of view of EST at multiple wavelengths and high frame rate. Its scientific objectives are the study of fundamental astrophysical processes at their intrinsic scales in the Sun's atmosphere. Here we report on the current
