Abstract

The concave grating stationary anastigmatic spectrograph has been modified into a novel retroreflective scheme by introducing a convex mirror concentric to the intermediate image. This provides double dispersion, diffraction-limited imaging of a long entrance slit, and substantial compensation of the stationary chromatic astigmatism. One can realize 140 independent multi/demultiplexers with 160 channels each simultaneously in the described device for optical network applications. Ray-tracing spot diagrams are presented.
