Paper Abstract

The LINC-NIRVANA Fringe and Flexure Tracking System has nearly completed assembly in the lab in Cologne, and will soon be ready for shipment and integration into the full LINC-NIRVANA system at MPIA Heidelberg. This paper provides an overview of the final assembly and testing phase in Cologne, concentrating on those aspects that directly affect instrument performance, including the detector performance and stability of the detector positioning system.
