Paper Abstract

The requirements for medium/low resolution optical spectroscopy with the GEMINI telescopes are discussed. Two different modes have been identified to exploit the exceptional image quality expected from the telescope and its Adaptive Optics (AO) system while also providing a wide range of spectral resolution options over a larger field. Meeting these conflicting requirements within a single instrument poses a major challenge, and it may prove necessary to construct two devices.
