WHAT DOES ECHELLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Echelle grating

An echelle grating is a type of diffraction grating characterised by a relatively low groove density, but a groove shape which is optimized for use at a high incidence angle and therefore in high diffraction orders. Echelle gratings are, like other types of diffraction grating, used in spectrometers and similar instruments. They are most useful in cross-dispersed high resolution spectrographs, such as HARPS and numerous other astronomical instruments. Echelle Spectrometer: The first standard grating is optimized for a single lower order, while multiple higher orders of the echelle have an optimized output intensity. Both diffractive elements are mounted orthogonally in such a way that the highly illuminated orders of the echelle are transversally separated. Since only parts of the full spectrum of each individual order lie in the illuminated region, only portions of the different orders overlap spectrally.

Definition of echelle in the English dictionary

The definition of echelle in the dictionary is relating to a type of optical grating that splits light into different beams that move in different directions. Other definition of echelle is relating to a type of spectrograph.
