Paper Abstract

By comparing several integral field units (IFU), we focus on the image slicer and prove that the field matching of image slicer can be equal to radius matching in the off-axis telecentric light path. We prove that the single slice is still on the same spherical surface after rotation by using matrix, so spherical mirrors array come from one spherical surface has been demonstrated in theory. Based on the above conclusion, we have succeeded in modification 2.16-meter telescope and BFOSC (Bologna Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera) into integral field spectrograph. At the end, we propose a modification method that a slit imaging spectrograph can be turned into integral field spectrograph by inserting an appropriate image slicer.
