Design of the calibration unit for the WEAVE multi-object spectrograph at the WHT

Abstract:

WEAVE is the next-generation spectroscopic facility for the William Herschel Telescope (WHT), offering multi-object (1000 fibres) and integral-field spectroscopy at two resolutions (R ~ 5000, 20000) over a 2-deg field of view at prime focus. WEAVE will (mainly) provide optical follow up of ground-based (LOFAR) and space-based (GAIA) surveys. First light is expected in mid 2018. Here, we describe the calibration unit, which will be adapted from an existing unit for the AF2+WYFFOS spectrograph ...
