Abstract / Description:LUCIFER1 is a NIR camera and spectrograph installed at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). Working in the wavelength range of 0.9-2.5micron, the instrument is designed for direct imaging and spectroscopy with 3 different cameras. A set of longslit masks as well as up to 23 user defined (MOS) masks are available. The set of user defined masks can be exchanged while the instrument is at operating temperature. Extensive tests have been done on the electro-mechanical functions, image motion due to flexure, optical quality, instrument software, calibration and especially on the multi-object spectroscopy. Also a detailed characterization of the instrument's properties in the different observing modes has been carried out. Results are presented and compared to the specifications.
