The WFIRST-AFTA Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope TMA optical design provides 0.28-sq°FOV Wide Field Channel at 0.11” pixel scale, operating at wavelengths between 0.76-2.0μm, including a spectrograph mode (1.35-1.95μm.) An Integral Field Channel provides a discrete 3”x3.15” field at 0.15” sampling.
