SC410: Fourier Transform Spectrometry: Theory, Methods, and New Applications
The Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) has been recognized as a critical technology for remote sensing and is central to many NASA/ESA missions. The FTS enables a large family of visible and infrared applications from laboratory studies to atmospheric sounding to planetary exploration. In essence, the FTS instrument is a realization in glass and metal of Fourier's theorem. Consequently, designing the instrument requires a firm grounding in both optics and digital signal processing--so that one can 'see' through the Fourier transform and relate the measured signal (the interferogram) to the desired spectrum and understand the distortions of the spectrum introduced by the transfer function of the instrument. The course will be divided into two parts: theoretical and practical considerations and a survey of implementations and applications.
