Paper Abstract

The optical performances of the spectrometer for the SOHO/UVCS instrument have been tested. The flight unit of the spectrometer assembly consisting of the structure equipped with the entrance slit assembly, the grating drive mechanism mounting a pair of toroidal grating, and two photon counting cross-delay line 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, practically in compliance with the scientific requirements.
