Abstract

In common plane-symmetric grating spectrometer designs, the primary tangential and sagittal foci are not coincident except at a few discrete wavelengths. A quantity is defined to represent this deviation in focal curves. Expressions for this quantity are derived for common spectrometer mounts, and cases in which it may be minimized are discussed.
