A static polarization interference imaging spectrometer (SPIIS) was developed based on
a single birefringent component. When it is launched on the satellite (or aeroplane), it will produce
an interferogram and target s image in the spatial domain which is recorded using a 2D CCD
camera with device s pushbroom.The spectrum of the target is reconstructed from the Fourier
transform of the interferogram. The polarization interference imaging device has advantages of
ultra-compact, static, wide field of view, high throughout. In laboratory, a series of images and
interferogram are obtained using our principle device under module own pushbroom.© (2000) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
