Abstract

A new very wide angle imaging spectrometer optical configuration which uses an all-reflecting Schmidt camera with a prism spectrometer to give a strip field of view is presented. Three complete systems (15°,8.5°,2.6° FOV), including fore optics and spectrometer optics, were designed. These slit fields of view are pushbroomed across object space to create a 2-D image. The performance of each near diffraction-limited system and optical prescriptions is detailed. An all-reflecting Schmidt camera fore-optics system with a 60° field of view is also given.
