Paper Abstract

The Infrared Imaging System (IRIS) is a 0.8 m telescope equipped with a 1024×1024 pixels near-infrared camera using a HAWAII-1 detector array. IRIS will be located at the Cerro Armazones Observatory in Chile that is operated by the Ruhr University Bochum jointly with the Universidad Catolica del Norte in Antofagasta. The system is specifically designed to survey star forming regions and to search for deeply embedded variable young stars.
