An unconventional Fourier transform spectrometer is described which does not require mechanical scanning. The instrument uses a photodiode array as detector and incorporates features whereby the systematic background noise associated with this type of device may be compensated for to give good quality interferograms. Sample spectra are presented to demonstrate the performance of the instrument.
