Based on Electro-Optical (E-O) effect, the interferometer is static and polarization-transparent. Using voltage scan to replace mechanical scan modulates the Optical Path Difference (OPD) without movement. Depending on the study of Tymon Barwicz, MIT, a special design makes the interferometer polarization-transparent. A method is given to compensate the optical dispersion of E-O material. In the end, a spectrometer composed of this interferometer is in the 550nm band with spectral resolution up to 1 nanometer.
