Paper Abstract

A review of the properties of classical image slicers is given and the description of a modification of the Bowen-Walraven device follows. This description includes light path, discussion of fabridation errors and assembly and testing of prototypes produced at Kitt Peak National Observatory. Considerations about further development of image slicers conclude the article.
