KMOS: Assembly, integration and testing of three 0.8-2.5 micron spectrographs

Abstract:

KMOS is a second generation instrument in construction for use at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT). It operates in the near-infrared (0.8 to 2.5 microns) and employs 24 deployable, image slicing integral field units (IFUs) feeding three spectrographs. The spectrographs are designed and built by a partnership of the University of Oxford and Rutherford Appleton Laboratories (RAL). We describe the assembly, integration and alignment procedures involved in the co...
