Abstract
The far UV spectroscopic explorer grating mechanical design and analysis are discussed. These gratings are large (266 mm X 275 mm), and unique design constraints were imposed to maintain optical performance. FEM results of deflection and stress are presented. Requirements driving the unconventional grating design and its mount are addressed, including the plan to accommodate remote vacuum alignment in multiple degrees of freedom.
