APERTIF optical fibre labelling

Submitter: R.H. van den Brink
Description: Everybody knows, 'vele handen maken licht werk'! This was the thought for APERTIF when all optical fibers for the beamformers and the correlator turned out to have a request for labelling.

A onetime action that needs to be done in a short period of time, but will drain all motivation out of a person when doing it alone. APERTIF got assistance of several (temporary) ASTRON people to get the job successfully done.

Sjouke Zwier nicely prepared the action by setting up the Muller Room for a few hours and transformed it into a good oiled assembly line. After an instruction of the procedure, ten people were good to go. The result is an organized set of optical fibers sorted per dish, ready for installation at Westerbork.

The picture shows Martijn Kamps, Sjouke Kuindersma, Eim Mulder, Tom Houtsma, Sieds Damstra, Sjouke Zwier, Mark Dekens, Renze Prochazka and Elfi Dijkstra.
