We describe the design, fabrication, and testing of compact spatial heterodyne spectrometers (SHS). The interferometer is part of the effort to develop miniature robust high- resolution spectrometers to observe low density, low temperature and angularly extended planetary targets such as cometary coma and lunar exosphere in near-ultraviolet OH fluorescence emission. The stability of the spectrometer coupled with the high optomechanical tolerances makes this new instrument very robust and suitable for applications in space missions. © 2003 Optical Society of America
