Spatio-spectral transmission patterns induced on low coherence fields by disordered photonic crystals can be used to construct optical spectrometers. Experimental results suggest that 1-10 nm resolution multimodal spectrometers for diffuse source analysis may be constructed using a photonic crystal mounted on a focal plane array. The relative independence of spatial and spectral modal response in photonic crystals enables high efficiency spectral analysis of diffuse sources.
