Profile Summary

Prof. Soojong Pak is an astronomer specialized in infrared instrumentation and observations. He is leading IR Lab in School of Space Research in Kyung Hee University.
IR Lab recently developed a new CCD camera, CQUEAN (CCD Camera for Quasar in EArly uNiverse) which was installed at the 2.1m telescope at the McDonald University in 2010 August. CQUEAN is optimized in 0.7 - 1.1 micron bands with a field of view of 4.7 X 4.7 arcmin. This instrument project is a part of works of Center for Exploration of Origin of the Universe The CQUEAN home page is on http://bigbang.snu.ac.kr/cquean.htm
IR Lab is also participating on the IGRINS (Immersion GRating INfrared Spectrometer) project and the GMTNIRS (Giant Magellan Telescope Near-InfraRed Spectrograph) together with the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute and the University of Texas.
