Paper Abstract

We describe our plans to combine the High Angular Resolution Imager/Spectrometer on the 4-meter Mayall telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory and the (256 x 1024)-pixel Multi-Anode Microchannel Array (MAMA) detector system, developed at the University of Colorado, to produce a unique instrument for speckle spectroscopy. The pulse-counting detector system will provide distortion-free imaging and will time tag each spatially-resolved photon event with an accuracy of 100 ns. The Imager/Spectrometer will provide a spatial resolution of 0.07 arcsec orthogonal to the plane of dispersion and 0.18 arcsec in the plane of dispersion.
