Abstract

A modified Schwarzschild imaging spectrometer utilizing three nonconcentric aspheric mirrors and a plane grating is designed that can handle low F-number, long slit, and broad spectral range. Based on the geometrical aberration theory and Rowland circle condition, the astigmatism-correcting method of the Schwarzschild imaging spectrometer is analyzed. The design procedure of initial parameters is programmed using Matlab software. As an example, a modified Schwarzschild imaging spectrometer operating in 400–1000 nm waveband with F-number of 2.5 and slit length of 13 mm is designed, and good imaging quality is obtained.
