TEXES is a versatile mid-infrared spectrograph, which has been used on the NASA IRTF since 2000. It is capable of high spectral resolution (R ≈ 100,000), which is well suited for observations of interstellar and circumstellar molecules and ions, as well as molecules in planetary and stellar atmospheres. It has been installed on Gemini North where its point source sensitivity is expected to improve by a factor of 7, and its angular resolution will improve by 8/3.
