Abstract

The high-resolution vacuum-ultraviolet spectroscopic facility at SURF II, the Synchrotron Ultraviolet Radiation Facility at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Md., consists of a fore-optics system of three cylindrical mirrors and a 6.65-m concave grating spectrometer using the off-plane Eagle mounting. To prepare for the evaluation of the actual performance of this national-facility spectrometer against theoretical expectations, we computed scanning parameters, spectral resolution, and the optimum curvature and tilt of both entrance and exit slits. It is planned eventually to replace the exit slit of this instrument with a two-dimensional array detector to increase data collection efficiency. Therefore a major motivation for this work is that the results on the tilt and curvature of the exit slit can be used to maximize the resolution obtainable with the array detector through data processing.
