James Gregory showed the world his design for a reflective telescope in 1663. Ten years later, he alerted Isaac Newton to his observations of white light being split into colours when passed through a feather – the discovery of the diffraction grating.

We are now constructing reflective telescopes on the ground and in space that are orders of magnitude bigger than anything Gregory envisaged, and designing and building the instruments, many of which are dependent on diffraction gratings.

Come and see what's coming next at SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation.
