Paper Abstract

OPTIMOS-EVE (OPTical Infrared Multi Object Spectrograph - Extreme Visual Explorer) is the fiber fed multi object spectrograph proposed for the E-ELT. It is designed to provide a spectral resolution ranging from 5000 to 30.000, at wavelengths from 0.37 μm to 1.70 μm, combined with a high multiplex (>200) and a large spectral coverage. The system consists of three main modules: a fiber positioning system, fibers and a spectrograph. The OPTIMOS-EVE Phase-A study, carried out within the framework of the ESO E-ELT instrumentation studies, has been performed by an international consortium consisting of institutes from France, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy and Denmark. This paper describes the design tradeoff study and the key issues determining the price and performance of the instrument.
