Abstract: This document describes the design and preparation of the optical system used to illuminate the scintillating-fibre planes to be used in the MICE Tracker. This illumination test during the tracker station assembly is a part of the quality assurance (QA) scheme. The optical design uses a two-stage approach: first, cylindrical optics are used to focus the round beam from the LED into to a long, thin shape. A mechanical slit is placed here to select an evenly illuminated region, providing it with well-defined edges. The second stage is a set of relay optics which project an image of the slit aperture on to the scintillating-fibre plane. A useful consequence of using relay optics rather than a simple slit close to the fibre plane is that wear or accidental damage to the fibres are avoided when the illumination system is being scanned across.
