Paper Abstract

Very sensitive Fourier transform spectrometers (FTS's) have been developed for infrared measurements utilizing advanced technology to achieve stable operation at very low temperatures. All of the structural, optical, and detector components used to construct these spectrometers are cryogenically cooled to improve the sensitivity of their detectors and to eliminate unwanted background emission signals from the components. Various designs of cooled FTS systems which have been successfully used and tested by USU and AFGL are presented in the paper. The performance specifications, the advantages, and the limitations of each technique are discussed. Also, general evaluations of the advantages and the limitations of cooling an FTS are given.
