Abstract

We present the results of our work on developing fully integrated devices (photonic dicers) for reformatting multi-mode light to a diffraction limited pseudo-slit. These devices can be used to couple a seeing limited telescope point spread function to a spectrograph operating at the diffraction limit, thus potentially enabling compact, high-resolution spectrographs that are free of modal noise.
