A number of binary cyclic coding schemes for multiplex spectrometry are discussed and evaluated in terms of a linear, least mean square, unbiased estimate. The optical realization of such codes in dispersion instruments is briefly discussed. We show that there are many advantages both in the construction of the instrument and in its operation which accrue from cyclic codes.
