Abstract

An optical design for spherical-grating monochromators for application to synchrotron radiation is presented. High spectral and spatial performance is obtained with a spherical variable-line-spaced grating coupled to a spherical mirror with its tangential plane coincident with the grating’s equatorial plane. The monochromator works without an entrance slit in an off-Rowland configuration with a fixed entrance arm and demagnification on the exit slit. The law for groove-space variation of the grating compensates for the main spectral aberrations; spectral focusing in an extended energy range is ensured by a slight change in the exit arm with translations of the order of a few tens of millimeters. The inclusion of a spherical mirror ensures focusing on a plane perpendicular to the plane of spectral dispersion. The ultimate resolution is limited by the slope errors of a single spherical surface. The layout is applied to the design of a high-resolution monochromator for the 1000–250-eV region.
