Paper Abstract

The fundamental component of a stationary interferometer is a beam-splitter semi-transparent plate that provides phase-delay between the two interfering rays. The phase-delay changes with varying the incident angle of the entering ray, thus producing the entire interference pattern while moving the device over the surface of the observed target. Due to their technical characteristics these interferometers can reliably be adapted for aerospace remote sensing applications. Their ability to produce the interference of the incoming radiation over a broad spectrum of optical wavelength together with the possibility to accommodate the spectral resolution by changing its optical aperture and the sampling step make these instruments interesting for Earth remote sensing. This paper describes the results coming from laboratory experiments and numerical simulations carried out in order to investigate the use of the static interferometers for remote sensing purposes.
