KMOS: A multi-object deployable-IFU spectrometer for the ESO VLT

Abstract:
We describe the design of a 2nd generation instrument for the ESO VLT which uses 24 cryogenic pickoff arms linked to diamond-machined image slicing integral field units to deliver a unique multiple deployable integral field capability in the near-infrared (1-2.5 mu m). The science requirements for the instrument are presented and linked to the functional specification. The baseline instrument concept is described with emphasis on technological innovations.
