The LLAMAS Integral Field Spectrograph for Magellan

Our group has been developing designs for a new integral field spectrograph for the Magellan Telescopes.  This instrument, named LLAMAS (the Large Lenslet Array Magellan Spectrograph) would deliver full optical spectra over a 40″x36″ field of view (up to 60″ x 60″ in future expansion).  We will post mode information about recent development progress on LLAMAS soon; a synopsis of the instrument’s main characteristics may be found at the link below.
