Abstract

Temporal spectral astronomy looks at astrophysical phenomena showing spectral variability on very short timescales. Fibre Bragg gratings enable a spectral variation in the stellar target to be converted into a photometric one at the detector, allowing for short timescale variations to be resolved. Fibre Bragg gratings promise this way to surpass current astronomical instrumentation in reaching faster observations with a smaller and simpler instrument. The different possible uses of fibre Bragg gratings are presented for the detailed observation of several specific astronomical targets.
