9 September 2019 Spectral and radiometric calibration of WFIRST slitless spectrometer (grism) (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
We have presented the optical design and early test result of WFIRST grism spectrometer in previous SPIE conferences. This paper reports the follow-on activity of the spectral and radiometric calibrations, including the calibration methods, experiment designs, and the light source and detector calibration. The real grism calibration includes the throughput versus wavelength, which is largely determined by the diffraction efficiency of the two diffractive surfaces. It also includes spectral resolution, point spread function, and encircle energy measurements. The measured data are presented. The comparisons between the test data and the simulation from theory, or optical model, are also presented.
