GNIRS + GCAL Arc Lamp Identifications

The following table shows a summary of GCAL emission line plots for two lamps (Ar and Xe) at near IR wavelengths. The spectra all have the same integration time. Wavelengths are in vacuum. See also the general wavelength calibration page for more line lists etc.

GPI Pipeline

The GPI Pipeline 

The Gemini Planet Imager Data Pipeline allows transformation of raw data from GPI into calibrated spectral and polarimetric data cubes. It also provides some basic capabilities for PSF suppression through differential imaging, and for astrometry and spectrophotometry of detected sources.

Data Reduction and Calibrations

To properly reduce the GPI data the user needs to use the GPI Pipeline and download the proper calibrations from the GSA. 

Priority Visitor Observing

Priority Visitor observing is offered to investigators of regular semester Band 1 queue programs and is the default observing mode for Large and Long Programs (LLPs) . Investigators wishing to have their program considered for PV observing should indicate their desire to participate in the Technical Design portion of their queue proposal.

Accepted programs and status

GPI programs selected for Early Science Observations


The table below summarizes the programs that have been approved for GPI Early Science observations.


Near-IR Resources

Gemini's near-infrared instruments are capable of imaging and spectroscopy from 1 to 5 microns (see the Instrument Overview for a brief description of each). This page provides information common to all NIR instruments, specifically targeting calibrations and data reduction resources. Detailed, instrument-specific information is available on each instrument's own web pages.
