21 December 2000 Submillimeter-wave spectroscopic performance of JEM/SMILES
Author Affiliations +
An acousto-optical spectrometer (AOS) is employed in order to meet scientific mission objectives of submillimeter-wave limb-emission sounder (SMILES) to be aboard the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) of the International space station (ISS). The capability of multi channel detection with AOS is suitable for observing multi chemical species in a wide frequency region. Wide noise dynamic range enables us to obtain the spectra without unnecessary increase of system noise, suggesting a good combination of AOS with low noise front end system of SMILES> Several technical concerns relating to important instrumental characteristics of AOS are discussed and expected performance of the spectrometers to be used in the JEM/SMILES mission are over viewed.
