Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR TRANSFORMING THE ASPECT RATIO OF AN OPTICAL INPUT FIELD BASED ON STACKED WAVEGUIDES
(FR) APPAREIL DE TRANSFORMATION DE RAPPORT DE FORME D'UN CHAMP D'ENTRÉE OPTIQUE SUR LA BASE DE GUIDES D'ONDE EMPILÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus consisting of stacked slab waveguides whose outputs are vertically staggered is disclosed. At the input to the stacked waveguides, the entrances to each slab lie in approximately the same vertical plane. A spot which is imaged onto the input will be transformed approximately to a set of staggered rectangles at the output, without substantial loss in brightness, which staggered rectangles can serve as a convenient input to a spectroscopic apparatus. A slit mask can be added to spatially filter the outputs so as to present the desired transverse width in the plane of the spectroscopic apparatus parallel to its dispersion.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil consistant en des guides d'onde plans empilés, dont les sorties sont verticalement décalées. A l'entrée des guides d'onde empilés, les entrées de chaque plan s'étendent approximativement dans le même plan vertical. Un point dont l'image est représentée sur l'entrée sera transformé à la sortie approximativement en un ensemble de rectangles décalés, sans perte substantielle de luminosité, lesquels rectangles décalés peut servir d'entrée commode pour un appareil spectroscopique. Un masque à fentes peut être ajouté pour filtrer spatialement les sorties de façon à présenter la largeur transversale désirée dans le plan de l'appareil spectroscopique parallèle à sa dispersion.
