Paper Abstract

The recent interest of the astronomer community for volume phase holographic gratings is directly related to the enhancement of spectrograph throughput since this kind of grating can rise higher diffraction efficiency. Indeed, dichromated gelatine technology has demonstrated capability for 70-90% efficiency. From the heritage of several diffractive and holographic projects and applications, the Centre Spatial de Liege has recently decided to invest in the large-scale DCG grating technology. This paper will present the new facility which is now fully operational, its capability and first results obtained.
