NICMOS and its arrays - The near infrared camera and multi-object spectrometer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

NICMOS is a second generation instrument for the Hubble Space Telescope to provide imaging and spectroscopic capabilities in the near infrared region. NICMOS utilizes HgCdTe detectors in three cameras, one with grisms, to image in the 0.8-2.5 mm spectral region.
