6 December 2004 Imaging spectrometry at visible and infrared wavelengths using image replication
Author Affiliations +
We describe a new filter that simultaneously achieves spectral filtering and image replication to yield a two-dimensional, snapshot spectral imager. Filtering is achieved by spectral demultiplexing; that is without rejection of light; so optical throughput efficiency is, in principle, unity. The principle of operation can be considered as a generalisation of the Lyot filter to achieve multiple bandpasses. We report on the design and experimental implementation of an eight-band system for use in the visible and the design of an eight-band long-wave infrared system.
