First Quarter 1996
With the cryostat and optical design concepts now complete,
detailed design of the cryostat commenced.
space model of the cryostat was completed. The model is being
used to investigate access and techniques for assembly. A
dynamic analysis of the cryostat was carried out. Further
work was done to optimize the spectral resolution, spectral
coverage, and slit sizes. As a result a low spectral resolution
prism mode was added as an option. Potential mirror-slit fabrication
methods were pursued with vendors.
