Paper Abstract

The use of high diffraction efficiency Volume Phase Holographic grating as central element in a spectrograph allows to consistently increase the instrumental throughput. Moreover the geometry they use allow them to be located in simplified optical designs and their manufacturing characteristics make them ideal also for the high resolution (R > 20,000) domain. VPHG are the perfect solution for high resolution spectrograph coupled with moderate collecting areas such as those of robotic telescopes nowadays distributed worldwide. We present in this paper the spectrograph, currently under construction, that will equip the REM telescope at la Silla Observatory, Chile.
