Building a Spectrometer - CH Ting
"Electronic spectrographs recorded by a digital camera can be processed like a traditional spectrometer. The resultant curved spectral lines must be straightened and integrated vertically to form an accurate spectrum. I will talk about the spectroscope, spectrograph, spectrometer, and spectrophotometer, and all the fun I've had with them."
