T-ReCS SV Modes

Here we describe the key modes of T-ReCS to be tested as part of System Verification (SV). The pool from which verification observations will be drawn is described in the SV plan. This plan contains details of individual observations and describes other aspects of the system which will be tested.

System Verification with T-ReCS is being co-ordinated by Jim De Buizer (jdebuizer@gemini.edu) to whom any questions should be addressed.

T-ReCS has three SV modes:

  1. Direct imaging (8-25um)
    • Plate scale: 0.09 arcsec/pixel
    • FOV: 30x22 arcsec
  2. Low resolution (R~100) spectroscopy (with chopping)
    • Plate scale: 0.09 arcsec/pixel
    • Slit widths: 0.21-1.32 arcsec
    • Slit length: 22 arcsec
    • Spectral windows: N (7.7-13.0um) and Q (17.3-25.5um)
  3. "High" resolution (R~1000) spectroscopy (with chopping)
    • Plate scale: 0.09 arcsec/pixel
    • Slit widths: 0.21-1.32 arcsec
    • Slit length: 22 arcsec
    • Spectral windows: N (7.7-13.0um) only
