CROMOS: A cryogenic near-infrared, multi-object spectrometer for the VLT

Abstract:

We discuss a cryogenic, multi-object near-infrared spectrometer as a second generation instrument for the VLT. The spectrometer combines 20 to 40 independent integral eld units (IFUs), which can be positioned by a cryogenic robot over the entire unvignetted eld of the VLT (~7'). Each IFU consists of a contiguous cluster of 20 to 30 pixels (0.15 to 0.25" per pixel). The individual IFUs have cold fore-optics and couple into the spectrograph with integrated bers-microlenses. The spectrometer has...
