Doubly refracting prisms are used to convert an ordinary Ebert monochromator into a duochromator adapted to measuring small wavelength shifts in a spectral line. The instrument has the advantages of simplicity, good time resolution, high luminosity, and geometrically identical channels. An example of its use is given.
