Principal infrared instrumentation projects.
(Multi-object Infrared Spectrograph). EMIR is a wide-field camera and intermediate resolution near infrared spectrograph for the GTC.
(inFRared Imager and Dissector for Adaptive optics) es un espectrógrafo (infrarrojo cercano) de campo integral con capacidad de imagen para uso del sistema de óptica adaptativa del Gran Telescopio CANARIAS (GTC.
Project for the construction of a spectrograph for the new German GREGOR solar telescope, to be sited at the Observatorio del Teide.
Is one of the two E-ELT (European Extremely Large Telescope) first light scientific instruments.
(Long-slit Intermediate Resolution Infrared Spectrograph) - LIRIS is an intermediate spectrograph for the 4.2 m William Herschel telescope located at the Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos.
(Mid-resolution InfRAreD Astronomical Spectrograph)
The infrared spectrograph of intermediate resolution, MIRADAS, will operate in the 1 to 2.5 micron infrared band with a spectral resolution of 20.000.
During 2010, MIRADAS was selected as the infrared spectrograph for the new generation of instruments for the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC), and presently it is under development by and International consortium.
NAHUAL is an infrared high-resolution echelle spectrograph for the Great Telescope CANARIAS (GTC) of the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos in the island of La Palma. The main scientific objective of the instrument is to measure the radial velocity (RV) with very high precision (goal of 1 m/s) in the near infrared.
Tenerife Infrared Polarimeter II) - Enhancement of the TIP infrared polarimeter (built by the IAC and located at the VTT in the Observatorio del Teide). Installation of a new camera, improvements to the data acquisition and control systems and preparation for future use in the new GREGOR telescope spectrograph.
