Metrology, calibration, integration and testing of the WEAVE fibre positioner

Abstract:

This thesis is about a pick-and-place fibre positioner for WEAVE, a new fibre-fed multi-object spectrograph for the 4.2 m William Herschel Telescope with a multiplex of 960. First light is expected sometime in 2020. The research presented in this thesis has been a major step in ensuring that the fibre positioner will be able to perform to the design specifications, and meet WEAVE’s scientific requirements.

The first piece of work presented in this thesis concerns the full positione...
