abstract

The Cambridge Infra-red Panoramic Survey Spectrograph (CIRPASS) is described. This near-infrared (NIR) spectrograph has been used on the 8m Gemini-South Telescope, the 3.9m Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) and the 4.2m William Herschel Telescope (WHT). Its performance in both integral field mode and multi-object mode is discussed and some scientific highlights are presented. A multi-IFU system, which is currently under construction, is also described.
