Abstract

It was first shown by Pierre Connes (1956) that the resolution–luminosity product of a Michelson spectrometer could be substantially improved by the technique of field compensation. In the present paper various systems of field compensation are discussed, and an account is given of the tolerances allowed in their operation, together with their areas of usefulness.
