Author Affiliations +
The FPC (Fine-guiding and astroPhysics Camera) consists of two NIR (Near Infrared) cameras as focal plane instruments of the SPICA (Space Infrared Telescope for Cosmology and Astrophysics). The FPC-G (FPC-Guidance) is for fine guiding with an accuracy of less than 0.036" at 0.5 Hz, and the FPC-S (FPC-Science) is for a back-up of the FPC-G as well as for scientific observations with 10 filters - including 3 LVFs (Linear Variable Filter) - in NIR (0.8 - 5.2µm) imaging and spectroscopy. As one of the international consortium member of the SPICA project, KASI (Korea Astronomy and Space science Institute) is leading the conceptual design and the scientific cases of the FPC with Korea/Japan participants.
