    Abstract

    This article describes a variable speed (20-1000 mu m/s) photoelectric scanning method for high-resolution optical spectra. The particular feature of the method is that it uses an optical linear encoder and stores the data from multiple scans in a multichannel analyzer. This results in significant improvement in signal-to-noise over single scans. Although commercially available vidicon tubes or image dissectors have the advantage of simultaneously recording the complete spectrum, present system has the advantage of high positional repeatability (1 mu m) and is consequently suitable for high-resolution spectroscopy.
