World space observatory-ultraviolet among UV missions of the coming years
Continuous access to the UV domain has been considered of importance to astrophysicists and planetary scientists since the mid-sixties. However, the future of UV missions for the post-HST era isExpand
Fabrication of custom astronomical gratings for the extreme and far ultraviolet bandpasses
Diffraction gratings used in ultraviolet astronomical spectrographs have been made using mechanical ruling or interference lithography. However, required performance for newly developed EUV (10-90Expand
Reconstructing the EUV Spectrum of Star-forming Regions from Millimeter Recombination Lines of H i, He i, and He ii
The extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectra of distant star-forming regions cannot be probed directly using either ground- or space-based telescopes due to the high cross-section for interaction of EUVExpand

The IUE spacecraft and instrumentation
The International Ultraviolet Explorer satellite operates as an astronomical observatory to provide both high and low resolution UV spectra of sources other than the Sun. The spacecraft, itsExpand
The SPEAR Instrument and On-Orbit Performance
The SPEAR (or "FIMS") instrumentation has been used to conduct the first large-scale spectral mapping of diffuse cosmic far-ultraviolet (FUV; 900-1750 A) emission, including important diagnostics ofExpand
Mariner 9 ultraviolet spectrometer experiment: Strong stellar lines in OB stars
Data from the ultraviolet spectrometer on the Mariner 9 Mars orbiter have been used to measure the strong stellar lines of Si iii lambda1300, Si iv lambda1400, and C iv lambda1550. The C ivExpand
The On-Orbit Performance of the Galaxy Evolution Explorer
We report the first year's on-orbit performance results for the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX), a NASA Small Explorer that is performing a survey of the sky in two ultraviolet bands. TheExpand
UVSTAR observations of Adara (epsilon CMa): 575-1250 Å
UVSTAR, UltraViolet Spectrograph Telescope for Astronomical Research, operates in the 500–1250 A  wave-band at 1 to 3 A resolution. Here we report on the EUV and FUV observations of the B2 II starExpand
Extreme Ultraviolet Astronomy
▪ Abstract Astronomical studies in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) band of the spectrum were dismissed during the early years of space astronomy as impossible, primarily because of the mistaken viewExpand
The Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope - Performance and calibration during the Astro-1 mission
Results are reported of spectrophotometric observations, made with the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT), of 77 astronomical sources throughout the far-UV (912-1850 A) at a resolution of about 3 A,Expand
