Paper Abstract

Spectral devices are frequently using holographic diffraction gratings as dispersing elements. The trend in developing such devices is going toward rather small and compact ones, which use CCD-detectors. Very useful for these purposes are imaging concave gratings. They realize an essential progress by the combination of dispersion with imaging properties. Mostly their imaging properties are priorly used in a single plane only. This means, a small area around the center point of the entrance slit is taken into account only in the performance of the grating. We have investigated some possibilities to design gratings with high spectral as well as high spatial resolution. The influence of several grating parameters on spectral and spatial resolution properties is discussed and ways to find new application possibilities by variation of chosen parameters are shown. Which improvements could be reached with the help of further optical surfaces are discussed.
