Paper Abstract

Monolithic diffraction gratings are one of the key components of high sensitive spectral imaging systems including spectrometer used in space instruments. These gratings are optimized for high efficiency, lowest line spacing errors and low scattering values to improve the performance of a spectral imaging system. Spectral imaging systems lead to enhanced remote sensing properties when the sensing system provides sufficient spectral resolution to identify materials from its spectral reflectance signature comprising low signal-to-noise ratios.
