Company Information

    A typical line spectrum of a prism spectrograph can be produced by image synthesis. The entrance slit is simulated by a bitmap (Fig 3-5a) at the object plane of the system. The resulting spectrum is shown in figure 3-5b and the corresponding energy spectrum in figure 3-5c.

The upper example (Fig 3-5) is made disregarding the features of the detector. VOB++ and VOB pro obtain electro-optical features. Several detector and scanner types (electronical and mechanical) can be simulated. In fig. 3-6 a matrix detector is shown, like a CCD array used in TV cameras. Due to the comparatively coarse matrix the resulting spectrum (Fig. 3-7b, c) shows typical structures, which affect the resolution of the spectrograph.
