Paper Abstract

An improved TeO2 and Te infrared acoustooptic tuneable spectrometer has been analysed, using infrared fibres, a high speed frequency synthesiser and optimised algorithms. A comparison is made with the next best AOTF infrared materials, Tl3AsSe3, HgCl2 and PbBr2. A design study of the TeO2 and Te AO imaging spectrometer is also presented, operating in the two thermal bands, 1-5micrometers and 6-12micrometers , using an interchangeable fore-optics and a multiplexed electronically scanned infrared array cooled at 77 degrees K. Some initial experimental results indicate that these systems can perform well, an increase in the dynamic range in the 8-12 micrometers and is obtained compared to the 3-5*m band. It can be very useful in chemical process control, medical diagnostics, aerospace and earth remote sensing. Based on recent imaging spectrometer development, a design study of the TeO2 AO imaging spectrometer in the 0.4-1 micrometers band, for simultaneous spectroscopy at every pixel, is presented, using a CCD camera and fast data processing technology.
