We have constructed a computed-tomography imaging spectrometer (CTIS) that uses two crossed phase-only computer generated holograms (CGH) as the dispersing elements. This imaging spectrometer collects the multiplexed spatial and spectral data simultaneously and can be used for flash spectral imaging. Previous CTIS instruments require a single CGH dispersing elements which were designed with the freedom of adjusting each element in the cell profile independently during the design process. The CHGs for this instrument are designed as identical crossed gratings to model the design parameters of a crossed 1D addressable liquid crystal spatial light modulator. Future integration of a liquid crystal spatial light modulator allows for the possibility of optical preprocessing of tomographic images. The CGH disperser pair has been designed to maintain nearly equal spectral diffraction efficiency among a 5x5 array of diffraction orders and to minimize the diffraction efficiency into higher orders. Reconstruction of the (x,y,(lambda) ) image cube from the raw, two-dimensional data is achieved by computed-tomography techniques.
