Paper Abstract

PMAS has been designed and is currently being integrated as a traveling instrument of the Astrophysical Institute Potsdam. It is a UV-visual integral field spectrograph, with optimized efficiency and stability for use as a 3D spectrophotometer. PMAS is prototyped for first light at the Calar Alto 3.5m telescope with an option to go to other telescopes. We present the final design layout, details of the mechanics, optics, detector systems, and instrument control. We report on the current status of the integration.
