Channeled spectrum display using a CCD array for student laboratory demonstrations


The channelled spectrum of an optical beam generated by a laser diode operated below threshold after traversing microscope glass plates is spectrally analysed using a grating and a CCD linear array. The experiment has the following goals: to display the resulting channelled spectrum, to familiarize students with an important topic in metrology and to illustrate some interesting topics from spectroscopy using a CCD array as a spectrometer.
