The sampling theorem for deterministic functions is used to locate the center of gravity of a spectral line obtained by photon counting with a multichannel spectrometer. The sampling step and the width of the channels have been evaluated to locate the line with maximum accuracy. Our analysis and experimental results give the requirements needed of a photon counting multichannel Fabry-Perot spectrometer to improve the accuracy of measurement of the spectral interval between two lines.
