Paper Abstract

ISOPHOT is one of four instruments onboard the ESA Infrared Space Observatory scheduled for launch in September 1995. It covers the wavelength range 2.5 micrometers to 240 micrometers with wide and marrow spectral bands. Diffraction limited observations as well as wide beam measurements of faint extended sources are possible. Polarimetric observation can be made over the whole wavelength range. The minimal detectable flux is approximately 10 mJy. The astronomical areas to be addressed range from solar system objects to cosmology.
