Abstract [en]

The cryogenic high resolution IR echelle spectrograph CRIRES is the ESO infrared (0.95-5.4 μm) high resolution spectrograph operating at the Nasmyth A focus of VLT-UT1. The instrument provides long-slit (31″) spectroscopy with resolving power up to R=100,000 over a quite narrow wavelengths range, about 1/70 of the central wavelength. Observations of compact objects (e.g. stellar photospheres) could be made much more efficient by implementing a cross-dispersed mode, which increases the simultaneous spectral coverage by an order of magnitude or more. This paper presents the design of a relatively simple system to add cross-dispersed modes to CRIRES with a minimum impact on the instrument optics and mechanics.
