Abstract: I have developed the Kyoto tridimensional spectrograph II, a PI instrument for Subaru telescope.
It is a multi-mode optical spectrograph, which has integral field spectrograph (IFS) mode with a lenslet array and Fabry-Perot imager mode as well as more standard modes.
In this talk, I would concentrate on the IFS mode, explaining in what point our IFS differs from a conventional slit spectrograph.
I also will show examples of its scientific results:
i) resolving spatial and kinematic structures within a young AGN outflow,
ii) measuring a gravitational lens system to investigate matter distribution in th lens galaxy and internal structure in the lensed quasar.
