Paper Abstract

The Potsdam Multi-Aperture Spectrophotometer (PMAS) is a flexible UV-visual integral field spectrograph designed for operation at different telescopes. It is based on a dedicated fiber spectrograph with a novel, fully dioptic collimator-camera system. The optical system was specifically optimized in terms of efficiency and stability for operation with a fiber input. The final optical design is described with remarks concerning the manufacture and acceptance test results.
