Paper Abstract

The IR camera and spectrograph (IRCS) a facility instrument for the 8.2m Subaru Telescope is being built at the University of Hawaii, Institute for Astronomy. IRCS will use a 1024 X 1024 InSb array for spectroscopy and another 1024 X 1024 InSb array for IR imaging. In a collaborative effort with the team members of SpX2, a test system has been fabricated for joint testing of 1024 X 1024 InSb ALADDIN II based arrays. This document is a preliminary report on the test results of the science grade array provided by the Subaru Telescope Project. It is a possible candidate for inclusion in IRCS.
