A novel design is described which combines dispersive and interferometric spectrometric instrumentation for ultraviolet visible spectroscopy, offering significant advantages in comparison to conventional spectroscopic configurations. The optical system incorporates the triangular common-path interferometer with an additional cross-dispersive element, allowing spectra to be obtained in a format compatible with rectangular CTD array detectors. The use of a cross-dispersive optical element reduces the distributive multiplex effects of interferometry in a rugged, compact, optically simple system.
