我们很高兴能够被传送出去了突破性的新NEID仪器端口适配器为我们自己的WIYN望远镜。 NEID的missioon是MESURE地球大小的行星绕附近恒星的质量,发现由美国宇航局的苔丝使命。端口适配器是由黄金城麦迪逊分校的沃什伯恩实验室团队构建,博士的领导下。玛莎狼。


从报价 NEID网页: “NEID(新加坡国立大学医院-EED或野应-ID,与童谣‘流体’),从tohono的O'odham字意得名‘看’,是由美国航空航天局联合/ NSF的系外行星探索计划提供资金(或N,N-探索),并计划开始2019年9月在WIYN调试。

NEID consists of two principal parts. The port adaptor (provided by the University of Wisconsin) will be mounted on the Bent Cassegrain port at WIYN. It is used to acquire and guide on a target star, precisely maintaining the stellar centroid on a science fiber in the focal plane. Other nearby fibers gather simultaneous light from the sky. Calibration light can also be sent to NEID via the port adaptor. The fibers feed their light to a new spectrograph room built by WIYN on the ground floor of the observatory. The room ensures a stable environment for the spectrograph. The NEID spectrograph is built by Penn State University (Suvrath Mahadevan, PI). It is sealed in a vacuum chamber to maintain the optics at a stable temperature (variations <1 mK) and isolated from outside disturbances over NEID's 5-year program baseline."
