Focusing the camera

  • Focused the camera by changing focal length between lens and camera.
  • Cut-off value: $-0.06$, for all values
  • x range: $x_2 -x_1 < 2$.
  • Obtained $\sigma$ values for different focal length using algorithm

Peak asymmetry

  • Grating is centered on the mount, orientation of the blaze arrow is changed to investigate the asymmetry of the peak shape at different positions across the grating
  • Peak chosen is a bright line in He at a large grating angle (micrometer setting)

  • Asymmetry of the peak for different pixel positions, with the blaze arrow pointed away from the camera:

  • Asymmetry of the peak for different pixel positions, with the blaze arrow pointed towards the camera:
