Paper Abstract

A low cost, light weight, highly repeatable alignment system was developed to support and automatically align the individual modules of a mosaic photo diode detector array. The system consists of hollow round metal alignment pins nested in the square holes formed by V-grooves in the face of adjacent modules, and threaded rods passing through the modules to draw the modules into contact with the alignment pins and one-another and to support the modules. V-grooves and thru-holes in support brackets along two sides of the array align the brackets to the array for mounting to the optical system.
