Abstract
The Gemini Near-Infrared Spectrograph (GNIRS) supports a variety of observing modes over the 1-5 μm wavelength region, matched to the infrared-optimized performance of the Gemini 8-m telescopes. We describe the optical, mechanical, and thermal design of the instrument, with an emphasis on challenging design requirements and how they were met. We also discuss the integration and test procedures used.
