Abstract
FTS-2 is an imaging Fourier transform spectrometer (IFTS) being developed for use with SCUBA-2, the second generation, wide-field, submillimetre camera which will operate at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT). The FTS-2 interferometer uses a folded Mach-Zehnder configuration and will provide simultaneous broadband spectral imaging across both the 850 and 450 μm bands with variable resolution ranging from resolving powers of R ~10 to 5000. Details of the instrument design, optical modeling, data reduction pipeline and calibration plan which have changed since the project CDR are discussed, along with preliminary results of lab integration and testing.
