Paper Abstract

This paper presents a discussion on the development of a spectrometer which utilizes an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) as the wavelength dispersing component. The advantages of the AOTF in such a system are given, along with the design considerations for construction of the instrument. A breadboard system which utilizes a desktop calculator is discussed, followed by the description of a dedicated microprocessor-based spectrometer. Experimental results are given for each system and an evaluation of overall performance is presented.
