9 August 2016 NIR camera and spectrograph SWIMS for TAO 6.5m telescope: overview and development status
Author Affiliations +
Simultaneous-color Wide-field Infrared Multi-object Spectrograph, SWIMS, is one of the first generation instruments for University of Tokyo Atacama Observatory 6.5m Telescope where almost continuous atmospheric window from 0.9 to 2.5μm appears, thanks to the high altitude and dry climate of the site. To utilize this excellent condition, SWIMS is capable of simultaneous two-color imaging with a field of view of 9’. in diameter and λ/Δλ ~1000 multi-object spectroscopy at 0.9–2.5μm in a single exposure, utilizing a dichroic mirror inserted in the collimated beam. Here, we overview the instrument, report results of its full-assembly tests in the laboratory and present the future plan.
