Alternativtext: The schematics shows a cross section through a grating spectrometer. It illustrates the simplified photon path. Radiation passes the entrance slit. A grating disperses the radiation into it‘s spectral components which are detected by a photodiode array. Graphic: André Ehrlich / University of Leipzig
