With the telescope, you see all of the light together, but the spectrograph allows you to pick out different pieces; like this wavelength of light means that there is sodium, or this one means that there's water," Lockwood added.
According to the researchers, the spectrograph, an instrument employed by IRIS to separate the captured light into individual wavelengths, was pointed right into the heart of this flare when it reached its peak and the data obtained helped determining how different temperatures of material flows, giving scientists more insight into how flares work.
IRIS is equipped with an instrument called a spectrograph that can separate out the light it sees into its individual wavelengths, which in turn correlates to material at different temperatures, velocities and densities.
While photometrists have provided a very well observed lightcurve, see for example the AAVSO Light Curve Generator, (1) for the first time amateurs equipped with spectrographs have also contributed many observations.
Imaging spectrographs are optical instruments used to disperse and sharply focus light in the plane of dispersion, typically the horizontal or tangential plane of the instrument, onto a focal plane array detector.
