Ruled and holographic gratings experiment (AO 138-5)Experiments on the the Long Duration Exposure Facility involving the study of the behavior of diffraction gratings, ruled replica, holographic, and ion etched masters with a long exposure to the space environment are discussed. To separate the metallic coatings compartment, some mirrors were added to the experiment. In order to be free from grating senescence on ground, one set of reference compounds was stored. Two sets of compounds were loaded, exposed, and shaded typed, in order to differentiate vacuum influences and sun illumination, cosmic dust, and radiation incidences. The investigation of possible damages was operated according to the fundamental triple point of view of wavefront flatness, absolute efficiency, and stray light level.
