1 Fabry Perot cavity based microspectrometer Aamer Mahmood Donald P. Butler Ph.D. Department of Electrical Engineering University of Texas at Arlington, TX Sponsored by the National Science Foundation

2 Electromagnetic interference Electromagnetic energy from different sources will interfere when sharing the same space

3 Electromagnetic interference Interference depends on the phase of each component Constructive interference

4 A Fabry Perot cavity creates multiple sources with different phase from a single source Incident radiation Transmitted radiation Reflecting surface

5 Interference due to a Fabry Perot cavity The inter-reflector spacing determines the phase of the transmitted energy For maximum constructive interference For maximum destructive interference

6 Fabry Perot cavity based spectrometer For an inter reflector spacing of, the transmitted radiation will add constructively at Broadband incident radiation Narrowband transmitted radiation
