Abstract

The emerging astronomical technique known as wide-field spatiospectral interferometry can provide hyperspectral images with spatial resolutions that are unattainable with a single monolithic-aperture observatory. The theoretical groundwork for operation and data measurement is presented in full detail, including relevant coherence theory. We also discuss a data processing technique for recovering a hyperspectral image from an interferometric data set as well as the unusual effective transfer function of the system.
