GMACS: a wide field, multi-object, moderate-resolution, optical spectrograph for the Giant Magellan Telescope Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We present a conceptual design for a moderate resolution optical spectrograph for the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT). The spectrograph is designed to make use of the large field-of-view of the GMT and be suitable for observations of very faint objects across a wide range of optical wavelengths. We show some details of the optical and mechanical design of the instrument. © 2012 SPIE.
