The present state of grating spectroscopy is reviewed with special emphasis on
the far ir. The review includes the discussion of the properties of diffraction
gratings, the intensity distribution among different orders of echelette
gratings, Wood anomalies, ir and submillimeterwave filters, detectors, grating
spectrometers with thermal sources, rules for the construction of far ir and
submillimeterwave grating spectrometers, diffraction at the monochromator slits,
comparative performance of interferometers and grating spectrometers, and
spectroscopy of far ir laser emissions. Extensive references are presented.
