The authors developed a spectroscopic measuring system that can be controlled by a microcomputer to analyze the time-varying optical spectrum. A charge-coupled linear image sensor which has 128 pixels is used in this system as an optical detector, so that the optical spectrum can be measured quickly in a parallel way. The spectral line to be measured ranges from about 250 nm to 700 nm in wavelength. All data are digitized and transferred to a microcomputer to store in a floppy disk, and they can be processed for display in various forms. This system has been applied to the spectrum analysis of emitted light due to contact arc discharge.
