Paper Abstract

It is shown how undergraduate Physics students were introduced to spectrographs optics through laboratory sessions and computer simulations. Simulation and evaluation of two equivalent spectrographs corresponding to a real commercial spectrograph were performed. Evaluation of the real spectrograph was also performed. A comparative work on spectrographs linear dispersion and their resolution was also performed.
