Abstract

The present paper follows a previous one that dealt with the theoretical principles of a self modulating derivative optical spectrometer (SMODOS). In this paper the complete description is given of a prototype of such an instrument, namely, of its optical as well as electronic components. The project criteria are thoroughly discussed, and some examples of performance that demonstrate the power of the method are presented.
