14 June 1995 Review of fiber optic properties for astronomical spectroscopy
Author Affiliations +
Fiber optics have found use in astronomical spectrographs for nearly the past 15 years. In order to achieve optimal implementation of the fiber optics, one must know the performance characteristics of the fiber and its impact on how a fiber-fed spectrograph should be designed. I review here the fundamental properties of fiber optics as they relate to their use in such astronomical spectrographs covering the spectral band of 3000 to 11000 angstrom.
