Simultaneous measurement of dispersion, spectrum, and distance with a Fourier Transform spectrometer
Author(s): Thomas Hellmuth; M. Welle

Paper Abstract

A Fourier transform spectrometer is used to simultaneously measure distance, dispersion and spectrum. It is shown that short coherence interferometry has the potential to measure the three-dimensional distribution of the spatial structure of a sample with a resolution determined by the coherence length of the light source, absorption spectrum with a resolution of 1 cm?1 and a dispersion with a resolution of up to 10?5.
