Abstract
Brimrose proposes to develop miniaturized acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF)based multi-spectral imaging radiometer. This radiometer will operate in the wavelength range of 1 to 2.5um. We propose a novel fabrication procedure to make it capable of withstanding extreme environments of space. It involves moving parts, has high throughput and extremely fast scanning capability. The work focuses on 4 major areas: (1) Using newly developed bonding technique to bond transducer to the acousto-optic crystal to fabricated a more rugged AOTF, (2) The spectral characterization and calibration of the AOTF and, (3) Radiometric calibration of the multi-spectral AOTF, (4) Develop the bread-board design for Multi-spectral Radiometric Imaging System.In Phase II, the bread-board design will be optimized, the compact Multi-spectral Radiometric Imaging System will be built, optimized and thoroughly tested.
