6 July 2018 LSST camera bench for optical testing: design, assembly, and preliminary testing
Author Affiliations +
The Bench for Optical Testing (BOT) is a test stand that will be used for metrology and optical testing of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) Camera CCD sensors, immediately after the integration step where the sensors are installed into the Cryostat to form the LSST’s 3.2 gigapixel, 640mm diameter focal plane. The BOT uses existing methods to economically verify sensor performance, including measurement of focal plane flatness, CCD sensor spacing, gain stability, cross-talk, flat field images, response in each filter band, and dark level. This paper describes the requirements, design, and preliminary test results for the BOT test equipment.
