18 December 1992 Space particle imaging measurement system (SPIMS)
Author Affiliations +
SPIMS is capable of detection and sizing of particles passing through a detection zone that is outside the detection system hardware. The particle detection is accomplished through the digital measurement of the shadow width of a laser source. The system is engineered as a space experiment, as a result of which the design is fully automated, solar blind, employs a robust digital detection scheme, is small and lightweight, and uses minimal power.
