Ground-based and Airborne Instrumentation for Astronomy II
The Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy eXperiment [HETDEX] will employ over 43,000 optical fibers to feed light to 192 Visible Integral-Field Replicable Unit Spectrographs [VIRUS]. Each VIRUS instrument is fed by 224 fibers. To reduce cost, the spectrographs are combined into pairs; thus, two bundles of 224 fibers are combined into a single Integral Field Unit [IFU] of 448 fibers. On the input end the fibers are arranged in a square 'dense-pack' array at the HET focal surface. At the output enddoi:10.1117/12.790256 fatcat:nknb5xw3fjfknmei6mgy5cwza4
