Science with 3D-Spectroscopy

The scientific use of 3D-Spectroscopy is diverse and, over the last period, cover topics such as measuring the mass-loss evolution of red giant stars, stellar dynamics in globular clusters, studying the ionized gas and stellar population in giant hydrogen regions and mapping the properties of blue compact dwarf galaxies or galaxy mergers .
