M. Te Plate
The near-infrared spectrograph (NIRSpec) is part of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) science mission. The JWST Observatory, a cooperation of NASA and ESA, the follow-on mission to the Hubble Space Telescope and to the Spitzer Space Facility , will yield astounding breakthroughs in the realms of infrared space science. NIRSpec is a spectrograph that works in the near infrared spectral region from 0.6μm to 5μm and allows the observation of spectral features of the...
