Redback Systems

By using a modified echelle spectrograph design, Redback Systems can achieve broad-spectrum, single exposure imaging with high spectral resolution.

Redback Systems is made up of researchers from the Macquarie Unversity's Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Researchers across almost every scientific discipline utilise spectroscopic techniques to interrogate light – probing its intensity as a function of its wavelength. By collecting this information, researchers can probe many physical systems – from the material composition of stars and galaxies and the detection of previously undiscovered exoplanets, to the probing of atomic scale defects in next-generation nanomaterials and even to interact with quantum hardware.

Our team is building a compact, affordable, and robust ultra high-resolution spectrograph to enable researchers to conduct precision experiments. By using a modified echelle spectrograph design we can achieve broad-spectrum, single exposure imaging with high spectral resolution.
