Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) is widely used in science and industry for the measurement of electromagnetic spectra, and it's trend of minimization is particularly pronounced in many applications. A novel model of a micro FTS with no moving parts is proposed and analyzed. During the analysis, the gradients which mainly introduce the phase error are accounted for in details. Based on these assumptions and the improved Mertz phase correcting method, the spectrum of the signal is simulated, given the real extended light source. The resolution can reach 3.43 nm@800 nm, with high SNR limiting resolving ability 6.8 dB. The novel micro FTS could be made by MOEMS technology, which has some advantages over the conventional micro dispersive spectrometers based on the traditional technology, and this method can also afford some new concepts on the design of spectrometers. The research work is underway to demonstrate the theory.
