17 October 2007 Overview of laboratory testing results for an imaging Fabry-Perot interferometer
Author Affiliations +
An airborne imaging Fabry-Perot Interferometer (FPI) system was developed within NASA's Instrument Incubator Program (IIP) to mitigate risk associated with implementation of such a device in future space-based atmospheric remote sensing missions. This system is focused on observing tropospheric ozone through measuring a narrow spectral interval within the strong 9.6 micron infrared ozone band at high spectral resolution, while the concept and technology also have applicability toward measurement of other trace species and other applications. The latest results from laboratory testing and characterization of enabling subsystems and the overall instrument system will be reported, with an emphasis placed on testing performed to evaluate system-level radiometric, spatial, and spectral measurement fidelity.
