Paper Abstract

At present, spectrometer has popularly being used into varieties of fields including environment, food, medical health monitoring and metal industry because it has the advantages of noninvasive, high efficient and convenient etc. The performance of the spectrometer is determined by its optical system. Normally, according to the apparatus and principle of splitting-light, optical system of spectrometer can be classified into several categories, for example, filter-typed, dispersion typed, Fourier transform typed and acousto-optic tunable typed. The grating typed optical system has been popularly used into the spectrometer due to the features of higher diffraction efficiency, resolution and dispersion rate etc. In the grating-typed optical system, although the traditional plane and concave grating have usually been used into some spectrometers, some disadvantages of them still limit their applications, such as, large aberration, worse spectral flatness and low deficiency, etc. In this paper, to overcome these disadvantages of the traditional plane and concave grating, a novel optical system for spectrometer (OSS) based on volume phase holographic transmission (VPHT) grating was designed. For this novel grating, its manufacture and theories were investigated, and its diffraction efficiency was firstly numerically simulated according to different parameters. In order to prove the feasibility of this designed OSS, the spectral calibration experiment was performed and the spectral resolution reached 2nm.
