Abstract

For the convenience of monochromator users, the constant-bandwidth operation of a Czerny–Turner monochromator is reviewed and clarified for continuously variable and for discretely variable slit widths. A procedure for selecting the discrete slit widths that are necessary for nearly constant-bandwidth scanning is presented.
