Paper Abstract

A series of Seya-Namioka monochromators using concave aberration corrected holographic gratings have been designed to cover the spectrum from 180-900 nm. This broad wavelength range (4.5 octaves) severely tests the aberration correction ability of this monochromator All holographic Seya-Namioka monochromators displayed severe loss of resolution at one or both ends of the spectrum. Over this wavelength range, when compared at equal f/4, the Littrow and Czerny-Turner monochromators outperform the holographic Seya-Namioka mono-chromator for resolution specifications less than 0.6 nm.
