23 October 1997 Feasibility study on solar occultation with a compact FTIR
Author Affiliations +
A feasibility study for the solar occultation observation from space has been carried out. An ordinary Michelson type Fourier transform spectrometer with 1 cm-1 resolution and 10 Hz rapid sampling showed best feasibility by the trade offs among the sensitivity and resource consideration. For the low- cost and quick development, it is assumed to use design similar to a commercial laboratory model. By using 200 K TE cooled PC-MCT detector, it showed least resource requirement and the SNR greater than 150 over 800 to 3300 cm-1. By using 80 K MCT, it is possible to achieve the SNR greater than 500 can be achieved with more resources for weight and power.
