Abstract

We describe the UK participation in the FMOS project to provide multi-object IR spectroscopy for the Subaru telescope. The UK is working on the design of an OH suppression IR spectrograph, this work comprises the optical design, the opto-mechanical layout, spectrograph thermal environment and cryogenics and detector control system. We give a progress report on the current design work.
