BlueMUSE is an integral field spectrograph in an early development stage for the ESO VLT. For our design of the data reduction software for this instrument, we are first reviewing capabilities and issues of the pipeline of the existing MUSE instrument. MUSE has been in operation at the VLT since 2014 and led to discoveries published in more than 600 refereed scientific papers. While BlueMUSE and MUSE have many common properties we briefly point out a few key differences between both instruments… 

The BlueMUSE calibration unit: phase-A studies

BlueMUSE is a novel instrument under development for the ESO VLT, that builds on the legacy of MUSE, however with a blue wavelength range, a larger field-of-view (FoV), and higher spectral

Revisiting the Emission Line Source Detection Problem in Integral Field Spectroscopic Data

We present a 3-dimensional matched filtering approach for the blind search of faint emission-line sources in integral-field spectroscopic datasets. The filter is designed to account for the spectrally

BlueMUSE: Project Overview and Science Cases

We present the concept of BlueMUSE, a blue-optimised, medium spectral resolution, panoramic integral field spectrograph based on the MUSE concept and proposed for the Very Large Telescope. With an

The MUSE Hubble Ultra Deep Field Survey: I. Survey description, data reduction and source detection

We present the MUSE Hubble Ultra Deep Survey, a mosaic of nine MUSE fields covering 90\% of the entire HUDF region with a 10-hour deep exposure time, plus a deeper 31-hour exposure in a single 1.15

THE DATA REDUCTION PIPELINE FOR THE SDSS-IV MaNGA IFU GALAXY SURVEY

Mapping Nearby Galaxies at Apache Point Observatory (MaNGA) is an optical fiber-bundle integral-field unit (IFU) spectroscopic survey that is one of three core programs in the fourth-generation Sloan

The data processing pipeline for the MUSE instrument

The algorithms of all processing steps that operate on calibrations and science data in detail are described in detail, and it is demonstrated that the pipeline provides datacubes ready for scientific analysis.

The MUSE-Wide Survey: survey description and first data release

We present the MUSE-Wide survey, a blind, 3D spectroscopic survey in the CANDELS/GOODS-S and CANDELS/COSMOS regions. The final survey will cover 100 × 1 arcmin2 MUSE fields. Each MUSE-Wide pointing

The MUSE 3D view of the Hubble Deep Field South

We observed Hubble Deep Field South with the new panoramic integral-field spectrograph MUSE that we built and have just commissioned at the VLT. The data cube resulting from 27 h of integration

MUSE crowded field 3D spectroscopy in NGC 300

Aims. As a new approach to the study of resolved stellar populations in nearby galaxies, our goal is to demonstrate with a pilot study in NGC 300 that integral field spectroscopy with high spatial

The MUSE view of the planetary nebula NGC 3132

Aims. Two-dimensional spectroscopic data for the whole extent of the NGC 3132 planetary nebula have been obtained. We deliver a reduced data-cube and high-quality maps on a spaxel-by-spaxel basis for

Introducing atmospheric effects in the numerical simulation of the VLT/MUSE instrument

The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument is a second-generation integral-field spectrograph in development for the Very Large Telescope (VLT), operating in the visible and near IR
