The Next-Generation Infrared Spectrograph for the GTC

 

Wednesday March 7, 12:00hs - Seminar Room

 

Speaker : Stephen S. Eikenberry (University of Florida)

Abstract:

MIRADAS is a near‐infrared multi‐object R=20,000 echelle spectrograph for the 10.4‐meter Gran Telescopio Canarias.

It is the most powerful astronomical instrument of its kind ever envisioned, with an observing efficiency more than an order of magnitude greater than current capabilities for 10‐meter‐class telescopes. The MIRADAS science team includes more than 40 scientists from 8 institutions in the GTC community. In this talk, I will give an overview of the MIRADAS instrument, and particularly focus on the science capabilities and opportunities it will provide to the GTC scientific community.
