Paper Abstract

The need to measure upper atmospheric winds has led to the development of solid glass field- widened imaging Michelson interferometers that operate at a fixed path difference. This approach may be described as `optical Doppler interferometry' or `phase stepping interferometry.' It has culminated in the flight of WINDII, the WIND Imaging Interferometer on NASA's Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite.
