workshop VPHG


On 16 June 2021 the Opticon RadioNet Pilot (ORP) Workshop "Tailored Dispersing Elements for Astronomical Optical Spectrograph" will be organised online. Attendance is free but registration is mandatory.

In the framework of the Joint Activities of the ORP project, there is the possibility to develop Volume Phase Holographic Gratings (VPHG) based dispersing elements for observing facilities. This workshop aims to show this possibility and pave the way for the design and manufacturing of them.

The Workshop Programme can be found below:
