Abstract
The Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) photometer is one of four instruments on board the European Space Agency ISO satellite scheduled for launch in September 1995. It covers the wavelength range 2.5 to 240 μm with wide and narrow spectral bands. Diffraction-limited observations as well as wide-beam measurements of faint extended sources are possible. Polarimetric observations can be made over the whole wavelength range. The minimal detectable flux is ~10 mJy. The astronomical areas to be addressed range from solar system objects to cosmology.
