Abstract

The proposed JAXA/ISAS SPICA mission will have a cooled 3.5 m dish and will be the next step forward in sensitivity in far infrared astronomy. We describe the scientific case for an imaging Far Infrared Spectrometer for the SPICA mission and the outcome of a conceptual design study carried out by European scientists into the feasibility of such an instrument.
