Paper Abstract

The near infrared camera/spectrometer (or NICS, for brevity), that we are currently designing for first-light operations of the Italian Telescope Galileo (TNG), makes use of a set of optics for achieving both good quality imaging on equivalent fields of view on the sky as large as 4' X 4', and moderate resolution spectroscopy at a resolving power of 400 - 2200, with the possibility to reach 7500 in the future, over the near infrared bands from 0.95 micrometers up to 2.50 micrometers . We describe the details of the optical design, with the overall requests we imposed on the project in terms of performance and total size.
