Measurement and Correction Model for Temperature Dependence of an Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter (AOTF) Infrared Spectrometer for Lunar Surface Detection.Appl Spectrosc 2019; :3702819881786AS
The photoelectric response characteristics of an infrared spectrometer based on an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) are greatly affected by the temperature change of the radio frequency power amplifier and shortwave infrared detector. If calibration is not conducted, that will affect the quantitative level of the data. This paper puts forward a measurement and correction method for the temperature characteristics of an AOTF infrared spectrometer which is used in lunar surface detection and sets up a temperature characteristics correction model. This model was applied to an AOTF infrared spectrometer mounted on China's unmanned lunar rover. Laboratory tests show that the temperature causes an instrument variation of ∼20% when the temperature is between -20 ℃ and + 55 ℃, but this model reduces this variation to < 6%. Evaluating data from the lunar surface also verifies the effectiveness of this method.
