MIRADAS is the most powerful astronomical instrument of its kind ever developed.

The combination of the collecting area of GTC and the multi-object mid-resolution near-infrared spectra provided by MIRADAS make its capabilities unparalleled for addressing some of the leading scientific challenges of the coming decades.

This third-generation instrument for the telescope is led by Prof. Stephen Eikenberry from the University of Florida (USA), in collaboration with Universidad de Barcelona, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE), Institut d’Estudis Espacials de Catalunya (IEEC), and Instituto de Astronomía de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
