Paper Abstract

A Static Polarizing Atmospheric Michelson Interferometer (SPAMI) system for multiple emission lines is reviewed. It changes the Optical Path Difference (OPD) by Polarization Array (PA) at one time, instead of rotating the polarizer by four times in traditional polarizing Michelson interferometer. This allows the NPAMI system to make simultaneous measurements. PA is a key element cemented by four polarizers with different polarization orientations in the SPAMI system. In practice, assembly error is brought to the polarization array unexpected. It is proved that the temperature and wind velocity measurements are highly depended on the polarization orientations of polarizers in PA. In this paper, the effect of deflection of polarization orientation on temperature and wind velocity are analyzed and discussed. Moreover, a proper approach is proposed to improve the accuracy of alignment.
