multiplex spectrometer
A @S05837@ in which a single photodetector simultaneously receives signals from different spectral bands which are specifically encoded. In the case of frequency multiplexing, each spectral band is modulated at a specific frequency. Decoding is achieved by filtering out, by electronic means, the corresponding signals. Frequency multiplexing may be realized by changing the path difference between the two interfering beams at a uniform rate. Fourier transform of the interferogram so obtained yields the spectrum. This method is called @F02493@.
