Rugged optical mirrors for Fourier transform spectrometers operated in harsh environments

Feist, Dietrich, G.; Arnold, Sabrina G.; Hase, Frank; Ponge, Dirk

Abstract:
The Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) and the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC) operate a number of Fourier transform spectrometers (FTSs) that measure trace gases in the atmosphere by observing solar spectra. To guide the sunlight into the FTS, a solar tracker has to be placed outside. This device needs high-quality optical mirrors with good reflectance in the near and mid-infrared. More and more FTS stations are operated in remote locations with harsh environments. Optical mirrors are usually made for laboratory condition ... mehr
