Paper Abstract

This communication shows the design, layout, mounting and start-up of a high-resolution grating spectrograph for VIS-NIR at GREGOR 1.5m Solar Telescope (Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife, Canary Islands). The instrument will be used together with the Tenerife Infrared Polarimeter (TIP-II). As special characteristics of the design, the following can be mentioned: The first folding mirror of the spectrograph can be placed in two positions to take into account the change of the optical axis introduced by the polarizing beamsplitter of TIP-II. This way the instrument is optimally aligned when used in situations with and without polarimeter. The second and third mirrors rotate the image of the entrance slit, making it parallel to the grating grooves. A system of prisms are used to adequately fit onto the detector the two orthogonal polarized beams generated by the polarimeter. Two output beams are possible, to make feasible simultaneous visible and near-infrared observations.
