Rowland circle gratings are the first family of the holographic concave gratings series, presenting equidistant parallel grooves, without correction of optical aberrations. These gratings are used in the Rowland circle configuration where input, grating and detector(s) are arranged on the same circle defined by the radius of curvature of the grating.
Even though there can be significant vertical astigmatism at the focal point(s), this does not damage significantly the spectral resolution that can be achieved.
Rowland circle gratings find their unique use in OES-ICP applications for example, with an array of single-channel PMTs arranged on this Rowland circle periphery. The detectors are placed at specific locations on the circle to capture specific OES lines of key elements.
Careful design of the gratings at time of conception, precise holographic recording of the master and controlled replication processes in pristine laboratory environment guarantee an optical component that will deliver the best signal purity at the highest throughput possible, consistently, grating after grating, years after years.
