Paper Abstract

A new fiber positioner design has been developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to position hundreds or thousands of optical Fibers on a large-field telescope focal plane. Each fiber is individually actuated within a small cell on the focal plane using an r-θ stage. These fiber positioners are the baseline design for the curved focal plane of the Super IFU Deployable Experiment (SIDE) on the 10.4 m Gran Telescopio Canarias.
