Abstract
The FUSE is an astrophysics satellite designed to provide high resolution spectra with large effective area over the interval 90.5-118.7 nm. The FUSE instrument consists of four co-aligned, normal incidence, off-axis parabolic primary mirrors which illuminate separate Rowland circle spectrograph channels equipped with holographic gratings and delay line microchannel plate detectors.
