Paper Abstract

The aim of this work is to find a resolution value for grating spectrometers when two spectral lines are analyzed. The phase space representation is used to find this value when the following proposal is employed: If the Wigner distribution function is positive along the space frequency axis (at the origin of the space axis) then the two spectral can not be resolved; otherwise, the spectrometer resolve them.
