Paper Abstract

An optical design for a wide-field optical spectrograph has been developed as part of a point design study for a 30-meter telescope conducted by the AURA New Initiatives Office. The design discusses a feasible means to implement a 20 arc-minute field of view feeding spectrographs via fiber optics for low to moderately high resolution spectroscopy in the optical and near infrared spectral window. That concept is described in this paper.
