This slit provides the highest spectral resolution of any STIS slit and is restricted to use with the MAMA echelle gratings. Tests during ground calibration with this slit to obtain MAMA exposures of a mono-isotopic platinum lamp source produced resolving powers in excess of 200,000.Observations with this slit require a prior PEAKUP. The peakup is performed in two stages - first with the 0.2X0.09 aperture (or one of the small neutral density apertures), and then with the 0.1X0.03 aperture.
