Paper Abstract

In 2010, Sagem-REOSC delivered to Astrium GmbH the last model of the optics for Near Infra-Red Spectrograph (NIRSpec) instrument to be installed on-board the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and constituting a key European contribution to this challenging project. We will report the various steps of polishing, coating, integration and cryo test of this rather unusual all-SiC optics for such a high performance space spectrographic instrument.
