Smoke and Mirrors: Ultra-Rapid-Scan FT-IR Spectrometry

A few points are inescapable. Much higher scan rates and mirror velocities than have ever been used before have been demonstrated. Work to date has only scratched the surface of design possibilities for very-rapid-scan interferometers. These scans speeds will probably find applications in monitoring non-repeatable or noisy transients, spectral imaging and process monitoring. Much work remains to be done to understand the noise sources that are adversely affecting these measurements.
