Paper Abstract

Recent advancements in fabrication of near-infrared focal plane arrays are beginning to revolutionize near-infrared astronomy. The University of California Lick Observatory is undertaking a program to exploit these arrays by starting with a singlefilter (K band at two microns)imaging camera to be used at the Sane 3-meter telescope. The detector is a Rockwell 128x128-pixel device, sensitive from 1 to 2.5 microns and employing the NICMOS design. Camera specifications, controlling electronics, calibrations procedures, and device performance in the lab and at the telescope will be presented. Some images of astronomical targets will also be shown.
