Abstract

This paper describes the recent development of a novel automatic computer-controlled manipulator for emulsion film placement and removal at the microscope object table (also called stage). The manipulator is designed for mass scanning of emulsion films for the OPERA neutrino oscillation experiment and provides emulsion changing time shorter than 30 seconds with an emulsion film positioning accuracy as good as 20 microns RMS.
