Options for the HRMOS fibre positioner

Oct 22, 2021, 9:25 AM

HRMOS is envisaged as a high-resolution fibre-fed spectrograph with a moderate degree of multiplex capability, installed on one of the 8m Unit Telescopes on the VLT. Here we consider options for the fibre positioning system for HRMOS. One option is to refurbish the existing OzPoz positioner that is part of the FLAMES facility. OzPoz is a pick and place robotic fibre positioner commissioned in 2003. We also consider other potential types of fibre positioner that may offer advantages.
