Paper Abstract

Objective grating spectrometers have been used previously to image the sun in the EUV proving simultaneous images at several wavelengths. The grazing incidence variant of this type of instrument seems well adapted for application to the future Solar Orbiter mission planned by the ESA where thermal problems are expected to be severe. This type of optical arrangements also provide more flexibility for the optimal selection of performances.
