Abstract
An all-electronic scanning spectrometer is described which is capable of scanning the 0.6 to 1 μ spectral region at scan rates of up to 10,200 scans/second at a resolution of better than 15 An image dissector photoelectron multiplier tube is used as the detection device. The minimum detectable signal of the system is less than 1 x 10-6 w cm-2 2-1 at 0.8 μ. The instrument occupies a volume of less than half a cubic foot and is designed for operation in a KC-135 aircraft. Video magnetic tape recording is used, and a digital read-out method has been developed so that the data can be programmed into a computer.
