EMIR Science Highlights


EMIR addresses the core observing goals of a 10 m class telescope by providing multi-object near-IR spectroscopy of faint sources. Typical targets will be  stellar objects in the inner parts of the Milky Way, faint galaxies, low-mass stars, brown dwarfs, distant supernovae, resolved stellar populations in external galaxies, HII regions and objects in dust obscured regions: galactic nuclei, young stellar objects and edge-on galaxies. Some representative examples of scientific projects that are ideally suited for EMIR are:


The EMIR science with the guaranteed time are distributed in two main projects: GOYA and EAST.
