" A new NIR multi-object spectrograph for the Subaru Telescope "

Chihiro Tokoku

(SUBARU Telescope)

A brand new and powerful NIR spectrograph for the Subaru Telescope ( MOIRCS : Multi-Object InfraRed Camera and Spectrograph ) has just opened to the public from this September. Unique exchange mechanism for cooled multi-slit masks enables us to conduct low-resolution multi-object spectroscopy (MOS) in the NIR wavelength range up to K-band for more than 50 objects simultaneously. I will introduce the system of the MOS part of MOIRCS and observation technique.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
