Science with integral field spectrographs present and future

Abstract:

In the first part of this thesis we use the Oxford Short Wavelength Integral Field spec- Trograph (SWIFT) to trace radial variations of initial mass function (IMF) sensitive stellar absorption features in several galaxies. We observe M31 and M32, the two massive Coma brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs), NGC4889 and NGC4874, and the BCG in the Coma south-west cluster NGC4839. We measure equivalent widths of the sodium NaI λ8190 doublet, calcium triplet CaT λ8498, 8542, 8662 and Wing-Ford...
