Paper Abstract

CONICA has been developed by a German consortium under an ESO contract, to serve together with the VLT adaptive optics system NAOS as a high resolution multimode NIR camera and spectrograph. We report on final laboratory performance tests carried out during the integration period with the adaptive optics. Apart from an outline of the capabilities of this multimode instrument such as high resolution imaging, spectroscopy, Fabry-Perot and a sophisticated internal flexure compensation, we will turn our attention to a detailed examination of the detector characteristics to fully exploit the potential of the ALADDIN array.
