The Scanning Fabry-Perot Spectrometer

  • P D Atherton (a1)

Abstract

In this review the development of the Scanning Fabry-Perot for use in Astronomy, from its invention to the present day is described. The limitation of angle scanning and pressure scanning led to the development of piezo scanned etalons incorporating capacitance micrometers to form a servo-controlled system.
