## Fourier Transform spectrometers vs. Grating spectrometers

Introduction This article compares some of the less obvious details of fourier transform spectrometers and classical grating spectrometers. It contains some apparently not-widely-known observations I made recently, but is probably not interesting to you if you are not into spectroscopy. This is also why I will skip explaining how the two spectrometers work. The article will first compare the two types of spectrometers in terms of signal-to-noise ratio, and then […]
