The JWST Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) offers imaging, coronagraphy, and grism slitless spectroscopy. NIRCam has two modules pointing to adjacent fields of view, each of which uses a dichroic to observe simultaneously in a short wavelength channel (0.6-2.3 μm) and a long wavelength channel (2.4-5.0 μm).
Not yet launched.
