A stationary Hadamard encodement mask has been designed from a liquid crystal display. This mask, when properly installed and positioned in a dispersive instrument, allows the selected Hadamard encoded spectral elements to be focused on a single detector. Discussion of the advantages derived by this technique is presented. Several emission spectra in the visible and near-infrared region demonstrate the usefulness of the Hadamard transform technique. This novel spectrometer can provide a no-moving-parts spectroscopy for future spectral applications.
