Paper Abstract

Hubble Imaging Michelson Spectrometer (HIMS), a proposed instrument currently completing its definition phase, is designed to provide background-limited imaging capability and to exploit the diffraction-limited imaging capability of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in the wavelength range extending from 1000 to 2500 nanometers. The HIMS instrument also provides spectral resolution with resolving power [λ/Δλ] from 1 to 104. The basic opto-mechanical characteristics and design considerations for the instrument are described.
