THE THEORY, DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTERFEROMETRIC SPECTROMETER.
COLORADO UNIV BOULDER ENGINEERING EXPERIMENT STATION
A general introduction to the operation of inter ferometers and the way they are used to yield spectrometric data is presented. The theory of interferometric data acquisition and analysis is discussed in detail. Specific design problems encountered in adapting a Michelson inter ferometer to a rocket based experiment are discussed and their solutions are presented. The prospective research problem used as the design criterion is the measurement of the heigh rofile re-emission rate versus altitude and Doppler profile of the 6300A spectral line in the night sky airglow.
