A compact static birefringent imaging spectrometer (BIS) with spectral zooming capability is presented. It based on two identical Wollaston prisms and has no slit. The most significant advantage of the BIS is that we can conveniently select spectral resolution to adapt to different application requirements and greatly reduce the size of the spectral image data for capturing, saving, transferring, and processing. Also, we show this configuration blend the advantage of a grating spectrometer and a Michelson interferometer: extremely compact, robust, wide free spectral range and very high throughput.
