Paper Abstract

This paper describes the outcome of the ESA contract 20532/06/NL/Sfe entitled “Instrument concepts using dynamic diffraction gratings”. The goal of the project was to study the optical performance of state of the art dynamic diffraction grating technology and identify potential applications for space missions. A dynamic diffraction grating sample was obtained for characterisation and a demonstrator for a compact spectrometer architecture was implemented and tested.
