Paper Abstract

The Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) will be the most sensitive UV spectrograph to be flown aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The COS FUV and NUV channels will provide high sensitivity at resolution greater than 20000 over wavelengths ranging from 115nm to 320nm. We present a brief review of the instrument design, results from the optical testing of FUV gratings and predicted on orbit performance.
