Paper Abstract

Until recently, spectrometer designs for use at extreme ultraviolet wavelengths have been limited to grazing incidence Rowland spectrometers and transmission gratings. In principle, the new class of variable line-space spectrometers offer substantial advantages over these classic designs. The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer Satellite has three variable line-space spectrometers as part of its scientific complement; this is the first use of this class of device. The results obtained have been quite noteworthy. The in-orbit performance of these spectrometers are demonstrated with examples of the scientific results obtained in this mission.
