Multichannel Methods in Spectroscopy

Part of the Modern Analytical Chemistry book series (MOAC)


This chapter is intended to introduce, using a minimum of instrumental detail, the basic principles behind the advantages of Fourier and Hadamard transform methods in spectroscopy. Applications of these principles to each of several branches of spectroscopy, along with illustrative examples, may be found in succeeding chapters.
