2015 (English)In: Optics Express, ISSN 1094-4087, E-ISSN 1094-4087, Vol. 23, no 14, 17772-17782 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A four channel hyperspectral imager using Liquid Crystal Fabry-Perot (LCFP) etalons has been built and tested. This imager is capable of making measurements simultaneously in four wavelength ranges in the visible spectrum. The instrument was designed to make measurements of natural airglow and auroral emissions in the upper atmosphere of the Earth and was installed and tested at the Poker Flat Research Range in Fairbanks, Alaska from February to April 2014. The results demonstrate the capabilities and challenges this instrument presents as a sensor for aeronomical studies. (C) 2015 Optical Society of America
