Title: IFU Observation of SDSS Spectroscopic Strong Lens Candidates

Abstract: We propose to conduct IFU observation of spectroscopic strong galaxy- galaxy lens candidates from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. If confirmed, these lens systems would be extremely valuable to the study of galaxy mass distributions. Some would also provide a magnified view of the high-redshift, star-forming universe, while others would be the closest strongly-lensed extragalactic sources ever discovered.
