Abstract

A new approach to interferogram sampling is demonstrated for Fourier-transform spectrometry. Sampling of the infrared channel is triggered at equidistant optical path differences while samples are time-referenced with a high-resolution digital clock. This hybrid method exploits the advantages of both time and position-sampling techniques. It minimizes the dataload while allowing a postcorrection scheme to remove sampling errors. It is therefore highly adapted to imaging spectrometers designed for massively parallel spatial sampling. Also, this technique is particularly interesting for spectrometers equipped with an integrating detector, such as a CCD camera, since it can account for the inevitable delay caused by camera integration.
