Canon Inc. Successfully Develops First Practical Use Germanium Immersion Grating

Canon Inc. announced the successful development of the first practical use germanium immersion grating, making possible a significant reduction in the size of infrared spectrometers used in astronomical and other applications. Through the application of the Canon-developed germanium immersion grating, spectrometers could be drastically reduced to approximately 1/64th their current volume while maintaining the same levels of performance as the high-dispersion infrared spectrometers now employed in large telescopes. This, in turn, could support the launch of satellites equipped with high-performance spectrometers and make possible spectrometers for next-generation large astronomical telescopes that are smaller in size or enable higher levels of performance than those employed in astronomical telescopes currently in operation. This achievement, by facilitating increased efficiency in infrared spectrographic observations for the detection of organic matter or molecules related to life, would contribute to explorations into the history of the universe and the beginning of life. Canon is now prepared to supply its germanium immersion gratings as products and intends to market them to astronomical observatories and research institutes for use. While the benefits of fabricating immersion diffractive gratings were realized long ago, because the transmissive material employed in the field of astronomy for infrared frequencies (from 1 to 30 µm) is semiconductor material, it is extremely brittle. As such, attempts to achieve a surface of virtually perfect regularity with grooves measuring only a few nanometers§ proved difficult. In response to this challenge, Canon applied its own ultra-precision processing technology, developed through the manufacture of precision components to single-crystal germanium. As a result, the company succeeded in developing a practical germanium immersion grating with 100 µm grooves at regular intervals measuring just a few nanometers.
