AOTF-based Spectral Imaging System for microscopic sample analysis in visible and NIR is described, characteristic features and some potential applications are discussed. Advantages of double AOTF configuration are analyzed
A series of AOTF-based Imaging Spectrometers is described. Their characteristic feature is double monochromatization of optical radiation, which provides two highly important features: strong suppression of out-of-bandpass radiation, and elimination of image spectral drift. Technical characteristics and spectral images obtained are presented. Potential applications of those instruments are discussed.
