Paper Abstract

Proper phase correction determines the accuracy and quality of the spectral information obtained by Fourier spectrometry. The spectrum produced by Fourier transforming an asymmetric interferogram is a complex function and the process of phase correction rotates the imaginary part of the spectrum into the real plane producing a real spectrum that contains all the spectral information and an imaginary part that contains only noise. For two-sided interferograms improper phase correction produces a second-order error in the intensity of the spectrum. In one-sided interferograms, the antisymmetric component of the interferogram transforms into the imaginary part of the line profile, and phase errors can have a first-order effect on the line position. Practical examples of phase spectra and both corrected and uncorrected power spectra will be presented.
