PHEBUS spectrometer: characterization of optical subsystems prototype
Author(s): P. Zuppella; M. Suman; P. Nicolosi

Paper Abstract

The Bepi Colombo mission is a project of European Space Agency (ESA) devoted to Mercury exploration. Probing of Hermean exosphere by ultraviolet spectroscopy (PHEBUS) is a dual Extreme Ultraviolet and Far Ultraviolet (EUV – FUV) spectrometer, that will fly on Bepi Colombo. It will be devoted to spectral analysis of Mercury. A preliminary optical prototype has been assembled by CNRS – LATMOS and the test of optical subsystems (i.e. entrance mirror and gratings) have been performed in the EUV and FUV spectral range at CNR-IFN LUXOR. Experimental results are presented together with proper simulations.
