Pull up a chair and spend a while learning all about MIRI:
|An introduction and science overview|
|Overview of the instrument design and rationale|
|The MIRI imager|
|The low resolution spectrometer|
|The MIRI coronagraphs|
|The medium resolution spectrometer|
|Focal plane control and detector readout|
* The sensitivity numbers in this paper for the low resolution spectrometer are pessimistic by about a factor of three. A suitable erratum will be posted in PASP once this value has been confirmed in detail.
These papers appear in a special edition of the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, July 2015. Heartfelt thanks to Jeff Mangum (PASP editor) for his help to make this happen.
