  • The definition and optimization studies for the Gaia satellite spectrograph, the 'radial velocity spectrometer' (RVS), converged in late 2002 with the adoption of the instrument baseline. This paper reviews the characteristics of the selected configuration and presents its expected performance. The RVS is a 2.0 x 1.6 degree integral field spectrograph, dispersing the light of all sources entering its field of view with a resolving power R = lambda/Deltalambda = 11 500 over the wavelength range… CONTINUE READING
