The Instrumental profile of a spectrometer

Brief description

The aim of the project is to determine the instrumental profile of a spectrometer and to apply a simple procedure to remove its effects from recorded spectra.

A grating imaging spectrometer will be used with a CCD detector to record spectra of laboratory sources and during the exercise, experienced should be gained with the setting up of an optical instrument, the recording of images with a CCD, the reduction of CCD spectral data and the development of a computer algorithm to improve the representation of spectral data.
