A Visible Near-Infrared Hadamard Transform Spectrometer Based on a Liquid Crystal Spatial Light Modulator Array: A New Approach in Spectrometry

Volume 41, Number 5 (July 1987) Page 727-734

Tilotta, D.C.; Hammaker, R.M.; Fateley, W.G.

A stationary Hadamard encodement mask has been designed from a liquid crystal display. This mask, when properly installed and positioned in a dispersive instrument, allows the selected Hadamard encoded spectral elements to be focused on a single detector. Discussion of the advantages derived by this technique is presented. Several emission spectra in the visible and near-infrared region demonstrate the usefulness of the Hadamard transform technique. This novel spectrometer can provide a no-moving-parts spectroscopy for future spectral applications.
