Optimization Techniques for Diffraction Spectrometers
Author(s): Elena Sokolova
The unique properties of diffraction gratings make the optical design of diffraction spectrometers a complex problem. This Spotlight connects optical design and diffraction grating fabrication to address issues of diffraction efficiency, tolerance analysis, and optimization techniques. It further explores performance testing of gratings and modification of classical spectrometers using modern design and fabrication techniques.
