A new fast visible spectrometer built for the charge exchange diagnostic system of the RFX-mod Reversed Field pinch experiment is described. The optical mounting is of the Littrow type. The spectral resolution is defined by a 3000 grooves/mm, 180×143 mm2 wide reflection grating, and a focal length of 400 mm. The collimating optics is based on a commercial high quality f/2.8 telephoto lens, so that the input fibers can be vertically stacked without space in between. The detector is a two-dimensional charge coupled device back-illuminated sensor to ensure high quantum efficiency. Thus the spectrometer combines high speed, high spectral resolution, and excellent imaging quality. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
