The prototype fiber cable has been installed on the telescope/ 試作ファイバーケーブルを望遠鏡に敷設

We reported that Metrology Camera System had been installed to the Subaru Telescope for the test. MCS, however, is not the only instrument for PFS to have been installed to the telescope. The prototype fiber cable was also routed on the telescope to test the optical performance about a half year ago. The work was done a little long time… Read more »

Fiber Cable: Slit Assembly of Spectrograph arrived in Marseille / ファイバーケーブル:分光器のスリット部がフランスに到着

For the PFS instrument, the lights from about 2400 astronomical objects are designed to be delivered through long fiber cable from the prime focus of the telescope to the spectrograph modules on the fourth floor in the dome building. This fiber cable subsystem, which is about 65m long in total, consists of 3 parts: (1) short cables accommodated into the… Read more »

Prototyping Fiber Cable / ファイバーケーブル試作

In PFS observations, photons from the sky are fed into the optical fibers from one end on the Subaru prime focus, and are emitted out from the other end to feed the spectrograph. The prime focus and spectrograph are physically remote from each other, so the total length of the fibers that optically link them has to be approx. 60… Read more »
