Cryogenic tests of volume-phase holographic gratings : results at 100K.

Tamura, N. and Robertson, D. J. and Dipper, N. A. and Sharples, R.M. and Allington-Smith, J.R. (2006) 'Cryogenic tests of volume-phase holographic gratings : results at 100K.', Applied optics., 45 (23). pp. 5923-5928.


We present results from cryogenic tests of volume-phase holographic (VPH) gratings at ∼100 K. The aims of these tests are to see whether the diffraction efficiency as a function of wavelength is significantly different at a low temperature from that at room temperature and to see how the performance of a VPH grating is affected by a number of thermal cycles. We have completed ten cycles between room temperature and 100 K and find no clear evidence that the diffraction efficiency changes with temperature or with a successive thermal cycle.
