Abstract

We report the design, construction, and evaluation of a static Fourier-transform ultraviolet spectrometer. The spectrometer is based on Wollaston prisms that form an interferogram in the spatial domain, which is recorded with a detector array. We demonstrate the application of the spectrometer to gas detection. Using a deuterium light source, we measured a detection limit, with a 1-s integration time, for hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide, corresponding to 0.2 ppm over a 5-m path length.
