Abstract
The Grazing Incidence Solar Telescope (GRIST) described in this report is intended for flight in Spacelab and offers for the first time the combination of high spatial and spectral resolution in the XUV and EUV wavelength range. The telescope is a sector shaped Wolter type-2 paraboloid-hyperboloid mirror pair of 412 cm effective focal length, 280 cm2 aperture and 6 arcmin x 6 arcmin field of view. Spatial resolution is 1 arcsec (20 um in focal plane) defined as 50% of the image energy within this element. The telescooe may be operated in the wavelength range 9n-1700 Å. In combination with suitable focal Diane instruments a snectral resolution of better than 104 can be achieved.
