11 July 2006 First results with OSIRIS: NIR-imaging spectroscopy at the diffraction limit
Author Affiliations +
OSIRIS is an integral field infrared spectrograph designed for the Keck Adaptive Optics System. It utilizes an array of lenses and the latest infrared detector to simultaneously obtain more than 3000 spectra over a rectangular field of view (up to 48x64 spatial elements). In its broad band mode (16x64 spectra), each spectrum contains more than 1700 wavelength channels and covers an entire infrared band at a resolution of 3800. Due to the extremely low backgrounds between night sky lines and at AO spatial samplings, the instrument is also extremely sensitive. Here we present first results obtained during commissioning of the instrument following First Light in February 22, 2005. We demonstrate the performance of the instrument, in particular together with the Keck Observatory's adaptive optics system and provide a flavor of the science addressed with OSIRIS.
