Abstract

The general problem of obtaining an acceptable estimate of a spectrum in Fourier spectroscopy is discussed for four specific cases. The two known techniques currently used for the spectral recovery from an asymmetric interferogram are shown to be mathematically equivalent. A discussion of their practical merit is also included.
