Abstract
The Dyson spectrometer form has the potential to deliver good imaging performance, high throughput, and low distortion in a compact configuration suitable for cryogenic infrared applications. The three main requirements for a practical implementation—availability of the required concave diffraction grating, availability of the Dyson lens material, and clearance for slit and focal plane packaging—are now within the state of the art, opening the Dyson form to serious consideration. Several high-performance Dyson designs for the long-wavelength infrared are presented.
