Abstract: AKARI (formerly ASTRO-F) is a new space telescope for NIRMIR-FIR observations. The InfraRed Camera (IRC) onboard, covering NIRMIR, has a capability of low-resolution (R = λλ = 20 − 50) slit-less spectroscopy, and one can simultaneously obtain spectral information of all objects within the camera’s large FOV (10 × 10 arcmin2) over wide wavelength range (2-26μm). To exploit this unique capability, we will perform a deep NIR-MIR spectroscopic survey, the ‘S’pectrosco‘PIC’ surve‘Y’ of galaxies (the ‘SPICY’ mission program), down to ≃ 1 mJy around 15-24μm, to study galaxy evolution at z ≃ 0.5 − 1.0.
