Dispersive power of gratings and prisms
Author(s): Carlos I. Robledo-Sanchez; Alberto Jaramillo-Nunez; D. M. Gale; Gilberto Camacho

Paper Abstract

From the general definition of dispersion power, analytic expressions are deduced for the chromatic dispersion of a prism and a diffraction grating. This deduction is routinely presented in an optics postgraduate course, where emphasis is placed on the explanation of the phenomenon of dispersion in two apparently distinct optical elements.
