Astronomical Spectrographs and Technology Development for Ground-Based Telescopes

CfAI has a long track record of construction and commissioning of facility-class spectroscopic instrumentation for many of the world’s largest ground-based telescopes. We specialise in multi-object fibre-feeds and instruments for integral-field spectroscopy. We also have an active programme of technology development, including astrophotonics.
