This section contains information on UKIRT's suite of common user instruments for Cassegrain focus. These
are not available for community use at this time. For information on the prime-focus Wide-Field Camera
(WFCAM) go here .
||1-5um imaging and long-slit grism spectroscopy
with R~1500-3500. Also integral-field spectroscopy and imaging- and
||1-2.5um camera with 1024x1024 pixels; pixel scale 0.09".
Imaging polarimetry and K-band 400 km/s FP also available.
||1-5um long-slit grating spectrometer with R ~
|| UKIRT's polarimetry module for use with all instruments
except Michelle, which has its own waveplates.
||10-20um imaging and long-slit grating
spectroscopy. Echelle spectroscopy and imaging/spectro-polarimetry also
available. Instrument currently at Gemini
| Visiting Instruments:
||Links to TRISPEC and other visitor instruments. No
visitor instruments are scheduled for the forthcoming semester.
The graph below shows a plot of wavelength range against spectral
resolution for the UKIRT cassegrain instruments. Imagers are plotted in
blue, spectrometers in red. WFCAM covers essentially the same area as
