Spectrometers are the other work-horse of modern-day astronomy and ATC has delivered a number of cutting-edge instruments over the years. Our expertise lies in mainly in the infra-red to sub-mm wavelength.

It is inefficient to perform spectrometry on individual objects so all of the recent spectrometers we have delivered are multi-object instruments where multiple objects are measured at once by using a number of pick-off mirrors positioned in the focal plane.
