Abstract : A simple spectrometer is described for measuring directly both a high electric field (0.1-100 kV/cm) and wavelength over a broadband (0.1-10 cm). The combination of interference and gas breakdown are utilized in measuring the electric field and wavelength. Electron diffusion and the characteristic breakdown relation limit resolution of submillimeter wavelengths by requiring very high electric fields ( 100 kV/cm). (Author)
