Paper Abstract

Spectrum analysis at audio frequencies can be achieved using a strobe type optical system. A demonstrator has been fabricated with sensitivity ranging from 0.1 Hz to 10 KHz. The system examines fifty-four frequency bands simultaneously over a two octave region selectable anywhere in the sensitivity range. Resolution of 1/27th octave, in approximately 2.5% frequency steps, is obtained. First applications address diagnostics of mechanical systems for main-tenance purposes.
