Abstract
The Chandra spacecraft has been launched successfully on July 23, 1999. The payload consists of a high resolution X- ray telescope, two imaging detector systems in the focal plane and two transmission gratings. Each one of the two gratings can be put in the beam behind the telescope and the grating spectrometers are optimized for high and low energy, respectively. The Low Energy Transmission Grating Spectrometer consists of three parts: the high-resolution telescope, the transmission grating array and the detector, to read-out the spectral image.
