Science with NIFS, Australia's First Gemini Instrument

McGregor, Peter; Dopita, Michael; Wood, Peter R; Burton, Michael Graham


The Near-infrared Integral Field Spectrograph (NIFS) will be Australia's first Gemini instrument. NIFS is a near-infrared, imaging spectrograph that will be used with the ALTAIR facility adaptive optics system on Gemini North to perform near-diffraction-limited imaging spectroscopy over a 3·0″ × 3·0″ field of view with 0·1″ wide slitlets and a spectral resolving power of ∼5300. NIFS will operate in the wavelength range from 0·94-2·50 μm where ALTAIR delivers its greatest gains. Its primary...[Show more]
