Abstract

RECENT YEARS HAVE SEEN SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES IN LIGHT DETECTION TECHNOLOGY AND COMPUTER PROCESSING POWER. THERE ARE TWO DIMENSIONAL ARRAY DETECTORS, E.G. CCD ARRAYS, THAT ARE ENTIRELY CAPABLE OF PERFORMING AS SCIENTIFIC DETECTORS. MODERN SMALL COMPUTERS ARE CAPABLE OF HANDLING THE VAST QUANTITIES OF DATA PRODUCED ALMOST INSTANTANEOUSLY BY THESE DETECTORS. THE MISSING BUILDING BLOCK IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SPECTROMETER THAT CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS IS AN OPTICAL SYSTEM CAPABLE OF TWO DIMENSIONAL IMAGING. CHROMEX HAS DEVELOPED A PROPRIETARY METHOD OF PRODUCING HIGH QUALITY ASPHERIC OPTICS. WE PROPOSE TO USE THIS TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE A FULL-SPECTRUM MULTIPLE-INPUT FLAT-FOCAL-FIELD STIGMATIC IMAGING SPECTROGRAPH. THE SPECTROGRAPH WILL BE SMALL, 90MM FOCAL LENGTH, AND EXTREMELY RUGGED. A FIBER OPTIC INTERFACE WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL ALLOW UP TO EIGHT SIMULTANEOUS INPUTS. THE ABILITY TO MEASURE MULTIPLE SPECTRA RAPIDLY ANDSIMULTANEOUSLY WILL MAKE THIS DEVICE A POWERFUL TOOL IN MANYAPPLICATION AREAS.
