Abstract

We present several novel designs of static Fourier-transform spectrometers based on Wollaston prisms. By numerical modeling we show the increased field of view that can be obtained when an achromatic half-wave plate is included between the prisms or when prisms fabricated from positive and negative birefringent materials are combined. In addition, we model how a single Wollaston prism with an inclined optic axis produces a fringe plane localized behind its exit face, thus enabling the design of a static Fourier-transform spectrometer based on a single Wollaston prism.
