Abstract
In the 30-800 GHz range interferometric spectrometers are commonly employed in the spectral characterisation ofmaterials and components. However the multi-octave beams propagating through such spectrometers are not onlydiffractively spreading but have a degree of coherence which changes with frequency resulting in an instrument resolutionfunction that changes with frequency. I will describe how it is now possible to treat partially-coherent signal beamsusing Gauss-Hermite beam-mode analysis and will present numerical models, based on this technique, of the instrumentresolution function of a typical spectrometer.
