We present a flexible design for a static, multimodal, multiplex spectrometer which is optimized for the weak incoherent sources that are common in biomedical applications. Simultaneous high throughput and resolution are achieved in a single-shot measurement via 2-D aperture encoding. The resulting computational problem is well-conditioned and easily invertible.
