Paper Abstract

We present the results of a design study for an integral field spectrograph as the "back-end" instrument for spectroscopy of exoplanets carried out in the context of the EPICS Phase A study. EPICS is the planet finder imager and spectrograph for the E-ELT. In our study we investigated the feasibility of an image slicer based integral field spectrograph and developed an optical design for the image slicer and the necessary pre-optics, as well as the spectrograph optics. We present a detailed analysis of the optical performance of the design.
