Description

The Electro-Optics/Low Observables Laboratory supports graduate instruction for students enrolled in the Low Observables program. Its purpose is to introduce these students to laboratory techniques for the measurement of optical observables. Experiments are conducted in the areas of spectroradiometry, emissivity measurements, active and passive optical cross-section measurements, infrared imaging, and scattering measurements.

Equipment dedicated to the laboratory includes a CI Systems SR-5000 spectra-radiometer operating in the 1-14.5-mm region, a Santa Barbara Focal Plane InSb focal-plane array (FPA) camera in the UV-5.2-mm region, a FLIR Systems quantum-well infrared photo-detector (QWIP) FPA camera in the 8.2-9.2-mm region, and a Inframetrics dual-band (3-5 and 8-12 mm) infrared imaging system. Equipment available to the laboratory includes Fourier Transform IR (FTIR) spectrometers and the Optical Scatter Measurements Laboratory. Available lasers include a 50-mW cw HeNe, an 8-W cw CO2 and a 2.4-J Q-switched (2 ns) Nd:YAG. Image processing equipment and software, as well as video recording and editing equipment are also part of this laboratory.
