Ed Loh's primary research project has been the design and construction of the Spartan Infrared Camera, a $2.0M instrument for the SOAR 4.1 meter telescope on Cerro Pachon, Chile. Its spectral range is 1–2.5 μm. It has two plate scales, 0.043 arcsec/pixel for diffraction-limited sampling in the H and K bands, and 0.073 arcsec/pixel to cover a 5.0×5.0 arcmin field. It was installed in 2008.
