Transient event-locked Fourier spectroscopy
Abbreviated Journal Title
time resolved; Fourier; event-locked; Optics
A low-cost method of adding time-resolving capability to commercial Fourier-transform spectrometers with a continuously scanning Michelson interferometer has been developed. It achieves accurate timing by locking the sampling to the transient events and thus eliminates noise and artifacts caused by mirror-speed variations in the interferometer. This acquisition method is accompanied by a novel mathematical algorithm for extracting the spectral information from the data. The method has been used from the far IR to the UV at resolutions up to 0.1 cm(-1).
