Abstract

A liquid-helium-cooled Ebert-Fastie grating spectrometer for use in a sounding rocket is described. Twelve detectors and associated filters separate the 5–70-μm spectral range into twelve intervals, each of which is scanned as the grating is rotated. The instrument was launched into an aurora from Fort Churchill, Canada, but a cryogenic failure occurred early in the flight, and only a small amount of data was obtained.
