The METIS infrared instrument for the E-ELT

METIS is one of the Phase 1 instruments for the E-ELT. It will offer imaging and medium-resolution spectroscopy over a wavelength range from 3–19 micrometres, and high-resolution integral field spectroscopy over a wavelength range of 3–5.3 micrometres. METIS is the only E-ELT Phase 1 instrument to work at these longer mid-infrared wavelengths and complements the MICADO camera and HARMONI spectrograph.

This engineering drawing shows a cutaway view of the METIS.
