GeMs is the Gemini MultiConjugated Adaptive Optics System. This facility instrument delivers a uniform, diffractionlimited image quality at nearinfrared (NIR) wavelengths over an extended FoV or more than 1 arcmin across. This corrected beam then feeds either Flamingos 2 or GSAOI, the new generation of instruments to be commissioned at Cerro Pachon.


An introduction to MCAO and a detailed description of GeMS can be found here:


GeMS will be in commissioning during most of 2011. The commissioning schedule and latest news are frequently updated in the following page:

How to Use These Pages



More web pages for GeMS will be created as commissioning progresses. For now, please see the pages above or the Gemini adaptive optics pages for more details about Gemini's AO program in general.
