Laser driven plasma light sources offer highly intense output in the UV-visible region combined with a source size as small as 100 μm. In order to effectively use the small source size in high brightness applications, a stigmatic monochromator and focusing system must be used. Here we describe a simple brightness preserving optical system that should be useful across a broad range of applications. The output flux of this system is between 6 × 10(11) ph∕s and 4 × 10(12) ph∕s with a spectra resolution of 1.7 nm and field spot size of 0.1 mm from the UV to the VIS spectra range.
