Paper Abstract

The Astrophysical Institute Potsdam (AIP) has decided to develop an integral field spectrograph/spectrophotometer making the best possible use of 8 - 10 m telescopes with good image quality. The scientific motivation and driving requirements are outlined, along with a predesign study for the fiber-coupled spectrograph as part of the instrument. The fully-dioptric, high throughput fiber spectrograph is a self- contained module which may be of interest for other applications as well, e.g. multi-object fiber spectrographs.
