Z-Spec is a broad-band, moderate-resolution spectrometer employing a WaFIRS waveguide-coupled diffraction grating to an array of bolometers. We briefly describe the science case for the instrument, summarize its design, and present recent results from laboratory measurements and initial astronomical observations.
