Echelle spectrometers offer high-resolution (ca. one Angstrom or higher) and wide range (ca. half a micron or wider), simultaneously, without having a mechanical moving part. However, they require a complicated optical set-up as compared to conventional one-dimensional-dispersion/diffraction spectrometers, e.g., Czerny-Turner. Therefore, the simulation of the Echellogram is required before building the spectrometer. This paper aims to develop an application for visualizing the Echellogram using MATLAB App Designer followed by simulation of the optical aberrations by Zemax OpticStudio to optimize the spectrometer parameters. The developed application provides an interactive graphical interface with a user-friendly dashboard to control and monitor the required parameters. This spectrometer is being used in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) system application lied of robot-guided laser ablation of biological tissues.
