24 September 2012 High efficiency inexpensive 2-slices image slicers
Author Affiliations +
Image slicers are widely used in astronomical instrumentation to increase the resolving power of spectrographs with the maximum throughput. However, the manufacturing costs are usually significant. This paper describes new image slicer simple designs. They provide only two slices but with high throughput and low cost manufacture process. Two prototypes have been evaluated and their performances are reported.
