Second GMT High Resolution Spectroscopy Workshop
We will host a Workshop on high resolution visible and near infrared (1-5 micron) spectroscopy with GMT. Our intention is to focus on the scientific problems to be addressed, and how these science requirements will then drive possible designs for GMT instruments such as Q-Spec, SHARPS, and GMTNIRS. Since the science is not necessarily restricted to particular wavelengths or to the physics of particular detectors, we will include both visible and 1-5 micron near-infrared spectroscopy.
The workshop will be held on the University of Texas campus on Friday-Saturday, January 16-17, 2009, in ACE(S) 2.402 (map). This is the week following the January 2009 AAS meeting, and is a week when classes are not in session at the University of Texas.
