Paper Abstract

We are building a Multi-Object Double Spectrograph for the Large Binocular Telescope. The main themes of our planned research with the instrument are the formation and evolution of galaxies and their nuclei and the evolution of large- scale structure in the universe, although we expect that the spectrograph will be used for many other varieties of programs as well. The science goals for the instrument dictate that it have the highest possible throughput form 320 to 1000 nm, spectral resolutions of 103 to 104, and multi-object capability over an approximately 6 foot field. Our design is highly modular, so future upgrades should be straightforward.
