  8. Compact Stationary Spectrometer for Wide Spectral Range Applications

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a Fourier transform spectrometer with a minimum number of moving parts (or more ideally no moving parts - the so-called stationary spectrometer) has been the subject of considerable research and development. Recent work on a birefringence based system has resulted in the introduction of a commercial version of the system. While a significant step toward the goal of a practical ...
