Top Level Requirements

The GAMAICA instrument is determined by the top level requirements, which were derived from the science cases. In a nutshell, GAMAICA will consist of a square Integral Field Unit with 3600 fibers to pick up the light of the 3.5m telescope at Calar Alto. Fibers of a few meter length go through the telescope rotation axis to bring the photons to stationary spectrographs, mounted in the dome of the 3.5m telescope.
