30 September 2004 Adaptive-optics-assisted integral field spectroscopy with OASIS and NAOMI
Author Affiliations +
By incorporating spatial coverage with the spectral dimension, integral-field spectroscopy is uniquely suited for exploiting the capabilities of adaptive optics (AO) systems. OASIS is a lenslet-based integral-field spectrograph designed to perform high-resolution observations on AO-corrected sources, operating at visible wavelengths. This instrument was commissioned at the William Herschel Telescope, La Palma, in July 2003 to work with the ING's AO system, NAOMI. Here we present an overview of the capabilities of the OASIS+NAOMI system, and show results obtained using this technique. The science presented here is a small preview of what will be possible for a large number of objects when the GLAS laser guide system is operational.
