Abstract : The New IRAM KID Array 2 (NIKA 2) is a dual-band camera operating with three frequency multiplexed kilo-pixels arrays of Lumped Element Kinetic Inductance Detectors (LEKID) cooled at 100 mK. NIKA is designed to observe the intensity and polarisation of the sky at 250 and 150 GHz from the IRAM 30 m telescope. It represents one step further with respect the NIKA path nder instrument which has already shown state-of-the-art detectors and photometric performance. NIKA 2 is an IRAM resident instrument for studies of the Intra Cluster Medium from intermediate to distant clusters and so for the follow-up of Planck satellite detected clusters, high redshift sources and quasars, early stages of star formation and nearby galaxies emission. We present an overview of the instrument performance and the rst scienti c results.
