We have designed and constructed a second-generation version of the dispersed Fourier transform spectrograph, or dFTS. This instrument combines a spectral interferometer with a dispersive spectrograph to provide high-accuracy, high-resolution optical spectra of stellar targets. The new version, dFTS2, is based upon the design of our prototype, with several modifications to improve the system throughput and performance. We deployed dFTS2 to the Steward Observatory 2.3 m Bok Telescope from 2007…

STELLAR DIAMETERS AND TEMPERATURES. I. MAIN-SEQUENCE A, F, AND G STARS
We have executed a survey of nearby, main-sequence A-, F-, and G-type stars with the CHARA Array, successfully measuring the angular diameters of forty-four stars with an average precision of ~1.5%.
Ten-fold spectral resolution boosting using TEDI at the Mt. Palomar NIR Triplespec spectrograph
An optical technique called "interferometric spectral reconstruction" (ISR) is capable of increasing a spectrograph's resolution and stability by large factors, well beyond its classical limits. We
A multi-method approach to radial-velocity measurement for single-object spectra
TLDR
The theoretical background on which this software is based is described, and apart from the assumption that only synthetic templates are used, it does not rely on any of the characteristics of this instrument, so the results should be relevant for most telescope-detector combinations.
