1 November 1990 French activity in infrared astronomy from stratospheric balloons
Author Affiliations +
The setup and results of the experiment AROME to measure the 3.3 micron feature in diffuse galactic emission attributed to PAHs using stratospheric balloons are described. The main balloon project, Pronaus, consists of a 2 m telescope with two focal plane instruments: a submillimeter photometer dedicated to the measurement of very faint sources and a high resolution heterodyne spectrometer that measures water vapor and other species not observable from the ground.
