18 July 2014 ARNICA and LonGSp: the refurbishment of two near infrared instruments
Author Affiliations +
ARNICA and LonGSp are two NICMOS based near infrared instruments developed in the 90's by the Astrophysical Observatory of Arcetri. After more than 10 years from decommissioning we refurbished the two instruments with a new read-out electronics and control software. We present the performances of the refurbished systems and compare them with the historic behavior. Both instruments are currently used for testing purposes in the Lab and at the telescope, we present some example applications.
