Paper Abstract

Using the selective modulation interferometric spectrometer (SIMS) as a tunable filter is proposed. This tunable filter can have a large optical throughput and a resolving power on the order of a few thousand. A basic explanation of the operation of this filter is given with an emphasis on the similarities and differences between it and a Fourier spectrometer. Several equations that have been found to be particularly useful in designing, operating, and calibrating this filter are presented. The construction and operation of a tunable filter prototype are reported.
