Manne Siegbahn Memorial Lecture

Integral field spectroscopy and the exploration of the high redshift Universe

The first part of the lecture will be devoted to the development of integral field spectroscopy, from the historical development to the 3rd generation with MUSE. In the second part I will present some of the results brought by MUSE in the field of galaxy evolution and formation at high redshift. In the last part I will present some ideas for the future of integral field spectroscopy.
