Funding Agency:
University of Hawaii

The Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawai'i calls for proposals for using the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility. Available instruments include: (1) SpeX, a 1-5 micron cross-dispersed medium-resolution spectrograph (up to R=2,500); (2) CSHELL, a 1-5 micron high-resolution spectrograph (up to R=40,000); (3) MIRSI, a 8 to 25 micron camera and low-resolution spectrometer (R=100 to 200), (4) NSFCAM2, a 2048X2048 pixel, 1-5 micron camera with a 0.04"/pixel scale (82"x82" field-of-view) and a circular variable filter; (5) MORIS, a 512x512 pixel Andor CCD camera mounted at the side-facing, dichroic-fed window of the SpeX cryostat (60"x60" field-of-view), MORIS can be used simultaneously with SpeX, and (6) PI-instruments including a low-resolution 3-14 micron spectrograph and high-resolution spectrographs for 8-25 microns.
