" The Kyoto Tridimensional Spectrograph II --- New Observational Modes on Subaru --- "
Hajime Sugai (Kyoto University)
We have developed a multimode optical spectrograph,
the Kyoto tridimensional spectrograph II (Kyoto 3DII).
This has four observational modes: Fabry-Perot imager,
lenslet-type integral field spectrograph (IFS),
long-slit spectrograph, and filter-imaging modes.
We have succeeded in its test observations on the
University of Hawaii 88-inch Telescope as well as
on the Subaru Telescope. The Kyoto 3DII is so far
the only spectrograph with Fabry-Perot and/or IFS
modes that is mounted on Subaru. The pixel/lenslet
well samples image sizes obtained by Subaru so that
we can take advantage of its good image quality and
large aperture. Some results from successful test
observations are shown. Although it is not a common
user instrument, we have been carrying out some
collaborative research programs with non-members.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
