20 July 2010 Development of five multifibre links for the OPTIMOS-EVE study for the E-ELT
Author Affiliations +
The OPTIMOS-EVE concept provides optical to near-infrared (370-1700 nm) spectroscopy, with three spectral resolution (5000, 15000 and 30000), with high simultaneous multiplex (at least 200). The optical fibre links are distributed in five kinds of bundles: several hundreds of mono-object systems with three types of bundles, fibre size being used to adapt slit with, and thus spectral resolution, 30 deployable medium IFUs (about 2"×3") and one large IFU (about 6"×12"). This paper gives an overview of the design of each mode and describes the specific developments required to optimise the performances of the fibre system.
