Samuel Boissier visits UCM

Prof. Steve Eikenberry visits UCM

Prof. Stephen Eikenberry from Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida visited our team. Steve is principal investigator of FLAMINGOS-2, the near-infrared imager and multi-object facility spectrograph for the Gemini 8-m telescopes.

He is also PI of CIRCE, an all-reflective near-infrared (1-2.5 micron) cryogenic imager and polarimeter which will be part of the instruments of the 10m telescope GTC. We are very interested in this instrument since we plan to carry out a deep survey to find z=2 Hα emission-line galaxies using it.

La UCM participa en el diseño de un espectrógrafo de nueva generación único en su clase

SIDE, un espectrógrafo de fibras con tres modos de observación, podrá estudiar el espectro de miles de objetos en una sola noche, observando simultáneamente en la banda visible y en el infrarrojo cercano.

El instrumento, diseñado para el Gran Telescopio de Canarias, está siendo desarrollado por un consorcio internacional bajo la coordinación del Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) y en el que participa activamente el grupo de Astrofísica Extragaláctica e Instrumentación Astronómica de la UCM.
