Unformatted text preview: Czerny-Turner Monochromator 1 A monochromator selects out a single wavelength from a light beam. It literally allows a single (mono) color (chrom) to pass through the instrument. 'To accomplish this, the light must be dispersed into its component colors. The dispersive element could be a prism or a grating. In most commercial monochromators a metallic reflection grat- ing serves this role and this is the case in a Czerny-Turner monochromator. In this type of monochromator, a planar grating with a period A is used to diffract a plane wave. The directions of the various wavelengths are given by the grating equation, A sin0’ +sin6; = For the common situation of a monochromator in air, n1 equals 1. Similarly, for first- order diffraction, i equals 1. By rotating the grating to an angle p, the freespace wave- length /\ can be selected to pass through the system. The incident angle is 6’ = p + ¢ and the diffracted angle is 0; = p — d). The quantity 2gb is the mirror-grating-mirror angle (also known as the Ebert angle) and is fixed for a given monochromator. Derive an expression for the wavelength A that is allowed to pass through the monochromator. The surrounding medium is air and the diffraction is into the first or- der. Express your result as a function of A, p, and (1) only. Eliminate any sums and dif- ferences of angles in your expression. Simplify your result to the greatest extent possible. Put your final answer in the space provided below. For a particular Czerny—Turner monochromator, ¢ = 46° and the grating has 1200 grooves/ mm (1 /A). For this monochromator, calculate, showing all work, the rotation angle of the grating, p, needed to pass 600 nm wavelength light through the monochromator. Express your answer in degrees accurately to within i0.001°. Put your answer in the space provided below. p = degrees.
