Abstract:

This research program on remote sensing in the ultraviolet emphasized the development of imaging spectrophotometers sensitive in the ultraviolet and suitable for satellite borne applications. In addition, a significant amount of effort was devoted to supporting ground based uv measurements of rocket exhaust signatures and in redesigning and configuring one of GLs existing ground based UV imaging systems for wide field of view observations of the aurora in the near ultraviolet. A micro channel plate MCP image intensifier tube employing magnetic focus between the photocathode and the MCP was developed and demonstrated to be a feasible way of electronically correcting for satellite yaw.
