SINFONI Quality Control
SINFONI: a Spectrograph for Integral Field Observations in the Near Infra-red is an integral field spectrograph fed by an adaptive optics module and resides at the Cassegrain focus of UT4 (Yepun). The spectrograph operates with 4 gratings (J, H, K, and H+K: 1.1 - 2.45 µm) providing a spectral resolution of about 2000, 3000, 4000 in J, H, and K, respectively, and 1500 in H+K.
The spatial resolution is selectable from 0.25", 0.1" or 0.025" per image slice and results in fields-of-view of 8"x 8", 3"x 3", or 0.8"x 0.8", respectively. Aside from using SINFONI with AO stars and/or a laser guide star the instrument can be also used for seeing-limited open-loop observations.
More information on the SINFONI instrument and its technical details can be found on the SINFONI web pages.
