Abstract

A linear frequency or wavelength scale is obtained for several choices of prismatic dispersion by substituting commercially available cams for the existing tangent screw drive (in Perkin-Elmer Models 13, 12, and 112). A practical solution to the related mechanical problems is offered and other problems of linearization discussed.
