Preliminary theoretical results of adaptive optics (AO) spectroscopy were presented. Simulations for infrared spectroscopy at the MMT 6.5 m with laser guide star AO were performed which provides almost full sky coverage. The results showed that about 40-60% of the photons from a unresolved source can be expected within 0.2 arcsec diameter circle for J, H, K, L and M bands under typical atmospheric seeing condition. Natural guide star AO spectroscopy was also studied.
