Paper Abstract

Shearing interferometric spectrometers can be used for all- reflective, high-resolution (R equals 104 - 106) spectroscopy. The spectrometers can provide simultaneous imaging and be used for both sensitive emission and absorption spectroscopy of diffuse and point sources. Our designs require interaction with only a single optical element to create interference fringes and so can be used in the EUV and FUV (100 - 2000 angstroms) bandpass. Spectral interferometers consume a fraction of the volume required by conventional spectrographs with comparable resolution and consequently provide a promising technique for space missions.
