Paper Abstract

The design and development of NIRSPEC, a near-IR echelle spectrograph for the Keck II 10-meter telescope is described. This instrument is a large, facility-class vacuum-cryogenic spectrometer with a resolving power of R equals 25,000 for a 0.4 inch slit. It employs diamond-machined metal optics and state-of-the-art IR array detectors for high throughput, together with powerful user-friendly software for ease of use.
