|Issue Date:||2018||Volume:||Ground-based and Airborne Instrumentation for Astronomy VII||Editors:||Evans, Christopher J.; Simard, Luc; Takami, Hideki||Series:||PROCEEDINGS OF SPIE||Number:||10702||First Page:||1070239-1||Abstract:||CRIRES+ is the new high-resolution NIR echelle spectrograph intended to be operated at the platform B of VLT Unit telescope UT3. It will cover from Y to M bands (0.95-5.3um) with a spectral resolution of R = 50000 or R=100000. The main scientific goals are the search of super-Earths in the habitable zone of low-mass stars, the characterisation of transiting planets atmosphere and the study of the origin and evolution of stellar magnetic fields. Based on the heritage of the old adaptive optics (AO) assisted VLT instrument CRIRES, the new spectrograph will present improved optical layout, a new detector system and a new calibration unit providing optimal performances in terms of simultaneous wavelength coverage and radial velocity accuracy (a few m/s). The total observing efficiency will be enhanced by a factor of 10 with respect to CRIRES. An innovative spectro-polarimetry mode will be also offered and a new metrology system will ensure very high system stability and repeatability. Fiinally, the CRIRES+ project will also provide the community with a new data reduction software (DRS) package. CRIRES+ is currently at the initial phase of its Preliminary Acceptance in Europe (PAE) and it will be commissioned early in 2019 at VLT. This work outlines the main results obtained during the initial phase of the full system test at ESO HQ Garching.||Conference Name:||Ground-based and Airborne Instrumentation for Astronomy VII||Conference Place:||Austin, Texas, United States||Conference Date:||10-15 June, 2018||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/28525||URL:||https://www.spiedigitallibrary.org/conference-proceedings-of-spie/10702/2313743/Full-system-test-and-early-preliminary-acceptance-Europe-results-for/10.1117/12.2313743.short?SSO=1||ISSN:||0277-786X||ISBN:||9781510619579
