SAFARI: Imaging Spectrometer for the SPICA space observatory

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The Japanese SPace Infrared telescope for Cosmology and Astrophysics, SPICA, a 3 m class telescope cooled to ~ 6 K, will provide astronomers with the extremely low background necessary to explore the far-infrared universe. A consortium of European and Canadian institutes has been established to design and implement the SpicA FAR infrared Instrument SAFARI, an imaging Fourier transform spectrometer optimized to exploit the low background provided by SPICA. A summary of the SAFARI instrument is presented and the scientific goals reviewed.
