Paper Abstract

ARIES, a new 1-5 micrometers camera/spectrograph, is designed to capitalize on the exceptionally low thermal background and high optical throughput offered by the f/15 adaptive secondary system being built for the upgraded 6.5m MMT. With two state-of-the-art IR arrays, ARIES will provide diffraction-limited imaging in the JHKLM atmospheric windows and also echelle, long-slit spectroscopy at resolutions of 2,000 and 30,000. ARIES will also supply global wavefront tip/tilt information to the adaptive system using cryogenic pick-off mirrors to access field stars over a 50 arcsec diameter field at wavelengths from 1-2 micrometers .
