Millimeter and Submillimeter Detectors and Instrumentation for Astronomy IV
We present a concept for BLISS, a sensitive far-IR-submillimeter spectrograph for SPICA. SPICA is a JAXA-led mission featuring a 3.5-meter telescope actively cooled to below 5K, envisioned for launch in 2017. The lowbackground platform is especially compelling for moderate-resolution survey spectroscopy, for which BLISS is designed. The BLISS / SPICA combination will offer line sensitivities below 10 −20 W m −2 in modest integrations, enabling rapid survey spectroscopy of galaxies out todoi:10.1117/12.790156 fatcat:xglbhkfdpbcg7b66rdvgzfkmta
