Paper Abstract

The Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) instrument was designed and built to replace the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) instrument Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WF/PC2) and to provide improved ultra-violet through near infrared imaging capability over the extended HST mission. We describe the optical component integration, alignment, and performance testing of the optical bench assembly.
