Paper Abstract

Fourier transform spectroscopy is a long-established technique for basic research and analytical spectroscopy in the infrared and visible wavelength regions. However, its many advantages have not been put to use at vacuum ultraviolet wavelengths. This paper addresses applications and advantages of Fourier techniques for spectroscopy at VUV wavelengths and presents a report of progress toward a VUV Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) capable of operating throughout the vacuum ultraviolet, as well as in the ultraviolet and visible. In addition, the stigmatic property of the FTS is discussed. This feature could be exploited in spatially-resolved spectroscopy for remote sensing, spectral diagnostics of plasmas and flames, space astronomy, and national defense.
