Cross Grating Échelle Spectrograph
Application ID: 76151
This tutorial demonstrate the use of a Cross Grating feature in an échelle spectrograph. A cross grating is a periodic surface with two directions of periodicity. In this model the cross grating is used in high order in one direction and in first order in the orthogonal ("cross") direction. By this means a two-dimensional cross-dispersed spectrum can be produced with a single grating. A parametric sweep across several orders is made and the resulting ray and spot diagrams are generated.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
