Spatio-spectral transmission patterns induced on low coherence fields by disordered photonic crystals can be used to construct optical spectrometers. Experimental results suggest that 1–10 nm resolution multimodal spectrometers for diffuse source analysis may be constructed using a photonic crystal mounted on a focal plane array. The relative independence of spatial and spectral modal response in photonic crystals enables high efficiency spectral analysis of diffuse sources.
