Paper Abstract

We discuss the design of a new high-efficiency, high-resolution far ultraviolet echelle spectrograph. Our project concentrates on utilizing new technologies for gratings and detectors to reduce the impact of scattered light and maximize quantum efficiency over a large bandpass. This program will enable advances in a vast number of astrophysical subjects. Topics ranging from protoplanetary disks to the intergalactic medium can be addressed by incorporating such a spectrograph into a future, long-duration mission.
