Optical Fiber Positioner

Research in the field of dark matter is leading to the development of new facilities that enable the collection and analysis of light emitted by distant galaxies.

 

In partnership with a research group, MPS has developed a reliable system for positioning fibre optics directed towards these galaxies.

 

With a diameter of less than 10mm, the positioner must be able to accommodate two parallel axes that rotate independently, the fibre optic and two 4mm Faulhaber motors.
