Paper Abstract

The optical configuration of the mirrors in the two arms of an interferometer determines the length of the movement needed to obtain a required spectral resolution and the alignment tolerances needed to obtain adequate fringe visibility. The configurations that provide an enhancement of the maximum path difference, as well as the the configurations that provide a compensation for the alignment errors, are briefly reviewed. The optical configuration of a space-borne high-resolution far-infrared spectrometer for the study of the earth's stratosphere is presented.
