Paper Abstract

The SCUBA-2 imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS-2) is a dual-band Mach-Zehnder imaging spectrometer, built for use with the SCUBA-2 camera on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT). FTS-2 will provide resolving powers of R ~ 10 to 5000 across the 450 and 850 μm bands, with a FOV up to 5 arcmin2. The instrument has been built and tested, with first light on the telescope planned for fall 2010. We present the alignment process, laboratory test results, and discuss the first science targets in the context of other similar space and ground-based instruments.
