At the beginning of this paper, we simply describe the theories of spectrograph and the operating principle of grating. Based on the Spectrometer theory and optical theory we design a solar spectrograph by analyzing and calculating. And the working waveband of this solar spectrograph is between 510nm and 540nm. Besides, according to the design data, we ensure the blaze level of grating and the focal length of collimate. Due to the presence of the collimate in the optical structure, astigmatism exists in the system. For this reason, we add a cylindrical lens to the structure to correct. The optical system is characterized by using white-pupil design and folding light path to make the whole system simple. In the end, according to the calculated design parameters, we use the Zemax software for simulation, then the result is RMS only has 4μm at the 520nm. It’s worth nothing that the resolution merely near the reference wavelength (520nm)meets the design requirements.
