Краткий обзор статьи: We are proposing a new spectrograph (ATLAS) which would revolutionise intermediate-dispersion observations at the AAT. Based on the new technology of Volume Phase Holographic gratings, and using transmission optics, ATLAS offers high throughput and a wide field (24′). It will be ideally suited to extensive surveys of faint objects. It has been designed with a collimated beam diameter of 150 mm, giving resolution lambda/delta lambda up to nearly 10,000 with a 1.5 arcsecond slit and good efficiency. It will be a dual-beam instrument, to maximise observing speed and allow optimised optical coatings to be used. The project is working towards its Concept Design Review which will occur during 2000.
