Paper Abstract

We present the latest results of the sensitivity estimate for spectrometers of the SPICA Mid-Infrared Instrument (SMI). SMI has three spectroscopic channels; low resolution spectrometer (LRS), medium resolution spectrometer (MRS) and high resolution spectrometer (HRS). Taking account of the results of optical design of each spectrometer and the latest information of the expected performance of detector arrays, the continuum sensitivity for a point source, the continuum sensitivity for an extended source, the line sensitivity for a point source, the line sensitivity for an extended source, and the saturation limit are calculated for LRS, MRS and HRS and are provided in this paper.
