1 November 1990 Spatial heterodyne spectroscopy: a novel interferometric technique for the FUV
Author Affiliations +
The optical principles associated with spatial heterodyne spectroscopy (SHS) are described and the results of proof-of-concept tests performed in both the visible and the UV spectral regions are presented. A specific all-reflecting SHS configuration now being developed for high-resolution planetary Lyman-alpha studies is discussed. The expected performance of SHS systems is compared to that of conventional instrumentation in two cases: Venusian Ly-alpha measurements at high resolution from a sounding rocket and the velocity-resolved survey of the diffuse FUV interstellar medium emission from a Small Explorer class satellite.
