Paper Abstract

The Planetary Fourier Spectrometer (PFS) on board the Mars-94 mission is an infrared spectrometer optimized for studies of the Martian atmosphere. Moreover, the measurements of the instrument also will provide information about the surface composition and the surface- atmosphere interactions. The spectrometer consists of a dual Rotational Reflector Interferometer (RRI) covering two spectral ranges 220 - 1670 cm-1 (6 - 45 micrometers ) and 2080 - 8000 cm-1 (1.25 - 4.8 micrometers ) the long wavelength channel (LWC) and the short wavelength channel (SWC) respectively. Partial misalignment due to tolerance effects of real optical and mechanical elements are taken into account in an estimation of the spectral responsivity in comparison with the radiation of the Martian surface and atmosphere.
