NIRISS, NIRCam & NIRSpec
CANUCS will use all three of JWST's near-infrared instruments.
The NIRISS low-resolution grisms will provide spectra of thousands of galaxies per field.
NIRCam imaging will sample the galaxies structures and SEDs from 0.8 to 5 microns.
NIRSpec follow-up low resolution spectroscopy will target galaxies discovered by NIRCam and NIRISS as well as those for which NIRISS does not provide a redshift.
High-z Low Mass Galaxies
With the power of gravitational lensing we will find and study low-mass galaxies across all epochs.
We will search for the earliest galaxies, in rest-frame UV continuum and Lyman alpha line emission.
Resolved Emission Line Maps
With low-resolution grism spectroscopy we can isolate nebular line emission and make emission line ratio maps,
in order to understand physical properties like SFR, dust, metallicity and ionization.
Quenching in cluster environments
We will study how galaxies are transformed as they fall into dense galaxy clusters.
