Abstract
OSIRIS is a near infrared diffraction limited imaging field spectrometer under development for the Keck observatory adaptive optics system. Based upon lenslet pupil imaging, diffraction grating, and a 2K×2K Hawaii2 HgCdTe array, OSIRIS is a highly efficient instrument at the forefront of today’s technology. OSIRIS will deliver per readout up to 4096 diffraction limited spectra in a complex interleaved format, requiring new challenges to be met regarding user interaction and data reduction. A data reduction software package is under development, aiming to provide the observer with a facility instrument allowing him to concentrate on science rather than dealing with instrumental as well as telescope and atmosphere related effects. Together with OSIRIS, a pipeline for basic data reduction will be provided for a new Keck instrument for the first time. Some aspects of the data reduction pipeline will be presented here. The OSIRIS instrument as such, the astronomical background as well as other software tools were presented elsewhere on this conference.
