Paper Abstract

The Ultraviolet Spectrograph Telescope for Astronomical Research (UVSTAR), is an EUV spectral imager for solar system and stellar astronomy that covers the 500-1250 A wavelength range with sufficient spectral resolution to distinguish atomic emission lines and form spectrally resolved images of extended plasma sources. UVSTAR employs a pair of telescopes and concave-grating spectrographs that cover the overlapping 500-900 A and 850-1250 A spectral ranges.
