Diffraction Grating Handbook - 5th Edition
DIFFRACTION GRATING
HANDBOOK
fifth edition
Christopher Palmer
Erwin Loewen, Editor (first edition)
Table of Contents
The Diffraction Grating Handbook is supplemented by Thermo RGL's
Grating Catalog, which lists the standard plane and concave gratings
available.

If the Catalog does not offer a diffraction grating that meets your
requirements, please contact us for a listing of new gratings or a quotation
for a custom-designed and -fabricated grating.

Thermo RGL remains committed to maintaining its proud traditions - using
the most advanced technology available to produce high-quality precision
diffraction gratings, and providing competent technical assistance in the
choice and use of these gratings.
