Purpose:This project entitled « A cryogenic far-infrared Fabry-Perot interferometer as a potential Canadian contribution to the SPICA Safari instrument » aims to develop a cryogenic, far-infrared, Fabry-Perot spectrometer. This spectrometer will employ a novel design that not only builds on Canadian heritage in infrared spectroscopy, but also positions Canada to play a leading role in future far infrared space astronomy missions. If successful, it could be a potential Canadian contribution for the Safari instrument set to be part of the ESA/JAXA SPICA mission.
