Gemini-north multiobject spectrograph: Integral field unit

Abstract:

The Gemini-North Multiobject Spectrograph (CMOS) includes a powerful capability for integral field spectroscopy - the first to be installed and used on an 8-10m telescope. CMOS is switched to this mode by the remote insertion of an integral field unit (IFU) into the focal plane in place of the masks used for multiobject spectroscopy. With 1500 lenslet-coupled fibres, it provides a total field of view exceeding 50 square arcseconds, including a separate field dedicated to background subtractio...
