Abstract

The geometric theory of imaging for spectrometer systems is extended to include those with diffraction gratings produced holographically by the intersection of two sets of spherical wave fronts that have been rendered aspheric through reflection from concave mirrors. Aberration coefficients are derived that reduce to those of conventional holographic grating systems in the appropriate limit, and degrees of freedom for aberration correction are discussed.
