In recent years, Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) with small size and low mass is required in many applications with growing need for real-time and small platform spectral detection. In this paper, a micro Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (μFTIR) based on spatial modulation mode was designed. This spectrometer has the advantages of high stability and simplified configuration. It also promises optical path differences (OPD) with high precision, as MOEMS technology is used in manufacturing the key components. The simulation and the experiments with regard to this FTIR configuration have been done. Firstly, the diffraction effect of the micro multi-step mirrors (MMSMs) is studied. We discuss the influence to the reversed spectrum by different mirror widths and different diffraction distances. Secondly, we simulate and analyze the influence of the source solid angle to the spectral resolution. Thirdly, we set up the theoretical model of the collimation error which is mainly from the defocus of the optical system and analyze the result caused by the collimation error. Fourthly, a new discrete Fourier transform arithmetic using least-squares cosines progression (LSCP) is proposed which can reconstruct the spectrum with nonuniform sampled signals. Finally, the MMSMs are fabricated used the MOEMS technology and the structural parameters are tested.
