Paper Abstract

A 700-mm f/4.7 spectrograph camera lens was designed for imaging spectral lines in the 200- to 400-nm region on a 120-mm flat image field. Lens elements of fused silica and crystalline calcium fluoride have so little secondary spectrum that raytracing calculations predict a monochromatic resolution limit of 30 lines/mm without refocusing in the 238- to 365-nm region. Light scattering at the polished calcium-fluoride surfaces is avoided by sandwiching the fluoride elements between fused silica and cementing with silicone fluid. The constructed lens makes good spectrograms.
