Paper Abstract

The Cosmic Origins Spacecraft (COS) will be the most sensitive UV spectrograph to be flown aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The COS FUV and NUV channels will provide high sensitivity at resolution greater than 20000 over wavelengths ranging from 115 nm to 320 nm. We present a brief review of the instrument design and grating test plan as well optical test results for the first FUV grating delivered.
