GMTIFS: Challenging optical design problems and their solutions for the GMT integral-field spectrograph

Hart, John; Bloxham, Gabe; Boz, Robert; Espeland, Brady; Sharp, Robert


GMTIFS is a first generation instrument for the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT). It is a combined Imager and Integral Field Spectrograph (IFS) designed to work with the Adaptive Optics (AO) Systems of the GMT. Working at the diffraction limit of the GMT and satisfying the challenging AO interface requirements and constraints results in unique optical challenges. We describe two of these challenges and how we have addressed them. The GMT has a direct feed architecture that maximizes transmission...[Show more]
