Visitor Instruments

Listed here are visitors' instruments often used at the IRTF. The PIs who own these instruments have agreed to consider collaborative applications from other astronomers for observing programs using them. Such programs must be agreed with the PIs who are listed for each instrument and the applications must be submitted jointly with the relevant PI. These instruments are not supported by the IRTF, and the costs of their transport and operation must be borne by PIs and their collaborators.
