Efficiency Plot:
Note: VPH efficiency curves are computed using the rigorous coupled-wave (RCW) analysis. The efficiency does not take into account the throughput of the anti-reflection coatings, which will vary somewhat with grating angle, nor the internal transmission of the dichromated gelatin in the VPH grating. The plots show the center and edge wavelengths (vertical dashed and solid lines, respectively). The plots also show the RCW efficiency multiplied by the system throughput and detector quantum efficiency.
