Caption: Two digital camera photos of one of the FUSE detectors during Integration and Test at the JHU Applied Physics Laboratory. The long narrow opening contains the electronic detector upon which far-UV light from two FUSE mirrors will be focused. The vertical structures on either side are stray-light baffles. (July 1998)


Caption: One of the FUSE detectors (left) with its electronics (at right) sits on an optical bench in the lab at Berkeley awaiting testing. (Fall 1997)


Caption: One of the FUSE detectors installed in the spectrograph. This photo was taken in Feb. 1998 at the University of Colorado in Boulder, just prior to shipping the spectrograph assembly to the JHU Applied Physics Laboratory. The vertical silver "boxes" on either side of the detector are light baffles that block scattered light within the spectrograph.
