Abstract : A scanning spectrophotometer employes fixed optics to produce a dispersion of optical energy. The dispersed optical energy is scanned by a fixed position surface acoustic wave photoelectric transducer. The scan rate of the surface acoustic wave photoelectric transducer is determined by associated electronic circuitry to produce scan rates permitting real-time spectral measurements from a moving platform.
