FMOS the fibre multiple-object spectrograph, part VIII: Current performances and results of the engineering observations

Abstract:

The Fibre Multi-Object Spectrograph for Subaru Telescope (FMOS) is a near-infrared instrument with 400 fibres in a 30' filed of view at F/2 prime focus. To observe 400 objects simultaneously, we have developed a fibre positioner called "Echidna" using a tube piezo actuator. We have also developed two OH-airglow suppressed and refrigerated spectrographs. Each spectrograph has two spectral resolution modes: the low-resolution mode and the high-resolution mode. The low-resolution mode covers the...
