Help: Application of Optical Fibre In Astronomy?

  1. Aug 27, 2005 #1
    I'm doing a presentation in this topic and I find it very hard to look for information on the web. Please, point me to any website or resources that have information about this topic? Thank You~! :confused:

    Here is a link to the 2 degree field galaxy redshift survey. The largest redshift survey to date with around 220 000 galaxy redshifts with median redshift ~ 0.1 and an average magnitude limit of 19.45.


    The 2df instrument uses ~400 optical fibres to take spectra of galaxies spread over 2 degrees of sky in one pointing.

    The 2df instrument is now being decomissioned and is to be replaced by AAOmega, which will have higher sensitivity.
