Paper Abstract

The optical performances of the spectrometer for the SOHO/UVCS instrument have been tested. A laboratory evaluation unit of the spectrometer assembly consisting of the structure equipped with breadboard models of the entrance slit assembly, a grating drive mechanism mounting a toroidal grating and a MAMA detector has been integrated and aligned. Both tests with visible and UV radiation have been performed. Aberration and stray light measurements have shown satisfactory performances of the instrument almost in compliance with the scientific requirements.
