The grism mount design for the Euclid-NISP mission was studied to maintain optical performances and alignment at cryogenic temperature, and to survive to launch vibrations. An Invar mount with strong weight-relief bonded to the Silica grism through tangential blades has been designed. In spring 2015 we proceeded to thermal cycling and vibration tests to successfully qualify the Grism Engineering Model in the Euclid space environment. Thanks to detailed Finite Element analyses, we correlated simulations and tests. Now that phase C began, we are manufacturing the Engineering and Qualification Model and the four Flight Models. Thus, random coupled analyses of the grisms on the complete wheel assembly and impact of interface preloads on the grism behavior have also been studied.
