Paper Abstract

A miniaturized, planar-grating optical spectrometer for the 2 to 6 micrometer range has been designed and fabricated. This has entailed development of a slab waveguide structure suitable for the infrared, a broad-band optical grating structure and fiber-based, IR input/output optics. Broad- band light is coupled into the spectrometer through a pig- tailed IR fiber and is subsequently dispersed into its spectral components and can be focused either onto a thermo- electrically (TE) cooled HgCdZnTe detector array or an IR fiber array. Integration of the optics and detector provides exceptional optical alignment and a very compact package that is suitable for various airborne and terrestrial applications.
