Abstract

A compact spectroscopic imaging device consisting of a planar reflection grating lens, a probe fiber array, and a two-dimensional image sensor was proposed and discussed. Reflected or luminescent lights from a subject are coupled to the probe fibers, guided to fiber output ends, radiated into the air, diffracted by the grating lens with wavelength-dependent angle, and focused onto lines on the image sensor. Two-dimensional intensity distribution on the image sensor can give one-dimensional spectrum distribution along a specified direction. A grating lens was designed with a fiber array and a CCD image sensor for 100-nm wavelength range and 10-mm fiber array width. A spectral resolution of 5 nm and a spatial resolution of 0.25 mm were experimentally confirmed.
