Integration in Grenoble

The AMBER instrument has been assembled for the first time in Grenoble. The subsystems have been designed and manufactured respectively in Nice for the warm optomecanics and low-level instrument control, in Arcetri for the cold spectrograph, in Bonn for the infrared detector and in Grenoble for the high level software. This section presents the instrument as it was at the end of this first integration phase before shipping the instrument to Paranal.
