In this paper, we present the status of VISIR, the mid-infrared instrument to be installed in 2001 at the Cassegrain focus of YEPUN, the telescope unit number 4 of the European Very Large Telescope program. This cryogenic instrument, optimized for both mid-infrared atmospheric windows (N and Q band), combines imaging capabiliti es over a field up to about 1 arcmin at the diffraction limit of the telescope, and long-slit (>30 arcsec) grating spectroscopy capabiliti es with various spectral… CONTINUE READING
