Abstract

A portable, versatile, ir Fourier spectrometer is described that provides 0.5 cm−1 spectral resolution in the 0.87–5.6-μm region. This spectrometer is employed in a varied program of astronomical observations from ground-based telescopes and from the NASA 91.5-cm airborne ir telescope. A number of spectral results are presented to illustrate the performance of this spectrometer in astronomical applications.
