Wide-angle spectral imaging using a Fabry-Perot interferometer

Matthias Strauch, Florian Bociort, Irina L. Livshits, H. Paul Urbach


We show that wide-angle spectral imaging can be achieved with compact and cost-effective devices using Fabry-Pérot interferometers. Designs with a full field of view of 90°, in which the Fabry-Pérot interferometer is mounted either in front of an imaging lens system or behind a telecentric lens system, are presented and analysed. We show the dependency of the spectral resolution on the numerical aperture of the lens system and demonstrate its value as a design criterion.
