The following capabilities have been identified as high priority for future Gemini instrumentation. (1) A natural guide star/laser beacon adaptive optics (AO) system at Cerro Pachon, and laser beacon capability for the Mauna Kea AO system. (2) A near IR coronagraph/imager for Cerro Pachon. (3) 1-2.5 micrometers multi-object spectroscopic capability, including IFU and multi-slit capability for use with AO corrected images, and wide field multi-object capability over at least 5 arcmin field of view. (4) Polarization modulators for optical and IR wavelengths at both Mauna Kea and Cerro Pachon. (5) A high stability lab optical spectrometer for Cerro Pachon, with resolutions around 120K and >= 300K.
