Abstract

The infrared instrumentation plan for the Subaru telescope is described. Four approved infrared instruments and one test observation system are now in the construction phase. They are coronagraph imager using adaptive optics (CIAO), cooled mid- infrared camera and spectrograph (COMICS), infrared camera and spectrograph (IRCS), OH-airglow suppressor spectrograph (OHS) and mid-infrared test observation system (MIRTOS). Their performance goals and construction schedules are summarized. The plan for procurement and evaluation of infrared arrays required by these instruments is briefly described.© (1997) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.

Article
Basic design and current development status of IRC, infrared camera on-board the IRIS is presented. IRC employs state-of- the-art format IR arrays for imaging and low-resolution spectroscopy at wavelength 2-25 micrometers . IRC consists of 3 cameras; NIR, MIR-S, and MIR-L. These 3 channels simultaneously observe different fields of the sky, with diffraction-limited spatial resolution.
