" 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, CFHT, and IfA.
