Paper Abstract

Spectrum-controllable light sources are able to generate desired spectrums as specific requirements, which have attracted huge interesting in many fields, e.g. life science, machine vision, defense-related science and technology. A controllable light source in the range from 0.38 to 0.78 μm, which is based on a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and an Offner dispersion configuration with a convex grating, is proposed in this paper. Due to its fast speed, high fidelity and simplicity with all spherical elements, the Offner relay is chosen as the dispersion structure compared with other existing spectroscopic configurations. The DMD located on the spectral image plane of the dispersion configuration is used to choose spectral channels according to the desired spectral radiance distribution through modulating micromirrors. The optical system of the proposed digitally spectrum-controllable light source is designed and further simulated by Zemax.
