Abstract
We report on the development of the fibre slit for the High Efficiency and Resolution Multi Element Spectrograph (HERMES). This paper discusses the design, mounting and alignment techniques of 784 science fibres and the magnificatin optics divided among two slit bodies. The measured performance of the fiber bundle shows an increased throughput of 50% in the existing AAOmega spectrograph using the same fiber mounting techniques.
