Paper Abstract

A new capability to acquire large amounts of spectrally determined optical data for a wide range of materials has been designed and developed from commercial off the shelf equipment. The software control system was written using LABVIEW 7.0. The Automated Rasterable Integrated Spectrometric and Total Integrated Scatter Measurement System (ARISTMS) represents a fusion of state-of-the-art technology and systems software to facilitate automated data acquisition to determine a material's spectral characteristics, surface roughness, and absorptance. It was developed as part of an ongoing Phase II SBIR effort to develop diffractively structured gallium arsenide infrared windows that are 100 mm in diameter transmitting between 1 and 10 microns. It was necessary to develop a capability that could scan or raster across the entire surface area of the window, vary the incident spot size, step size, and angle of incidence over the infrared spectrum of interest. The system offers a cost effective capability to screen many samples against preset thresholds for reflectance, transmittance, absorptance, and total integrated scatter for any number of measurement scenarios and sample classes.
