Paper Abstract

Design considerations of a spectrograph, employing volume holographic optical elements (HOEs) as the dispersing element and as a spectral filter for rejection of Rayleigh scatter, are discussed. This spectrograph configuration, referred to as axial transmissive, is compared to the Czerny-Turner, another commonly used configuration. In particular, theoretical and experimental comparisons of throughput and signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) are given. Measurements relating to the point-spread function of both spectrographs are presented.
