Abstract
In the present work we consider optical design of a multi-slit astronomic spectrograph for UV domain with freeform reflective elements. The scheme consists of only two reflective elements – a holographic grating imposed on freeform surface and a freeform mirror. The freeforms are described by standard Zernike polynomials and the hologram is recorded by two coherent point sources. We demonstrate that in such a scheme it’s possible to obtain quite high optical quality for an extended field of view and relatively high dispersion on a curved image surface. The spectrograph works with linear field of view of 76x32 mm and provides reciprocal linear dispersion equal to 0.5 nm/mm and typical resolving power of 15 000 over the UV range of 100-200 nm. Feasibility of the optical components is discussed and coupling of the spectrograph with a TMA telescope is demonstrated.
