Investigation of dielectric spaced resonant mesh filter designs for PMIRR

Infrared Physics 34 (1993) 549-563

The fabrication of the filters for the two longest wave channels of the Pressure Modulator Infra-red Radiometer (PMIRR), launched in September 1992 on Mars Observer, was not possible using conventional multilayer dielectric techniques. Thus the extension of far-infrared/microwave mesh filter designs was investigated using a new dielectric spacing material. Test filters were designed and fabricated and, using their measured transmission spectra, a new model of the behaviour of resonant meshes in both air and dielectrics was developed. The low transmission of these filters in the end made them unsuitable for PMIRR but the model provides a useful design tool for future dielectric spaced filters providing a new, less absorbing dielectric can be found. © 1993.

Diurnal and semi‐diurnal temperature variability of the middle atmosphere, as observed by ISAMS

Geophysical Research Letters 20 (1993) 1251-1254

Some preliminary results are presented showing that the ISAMS instrument on board the UARS satellite has detected sun‐synchronous variations in atmospheric temperature between 15–80 km altitude. These are interpreted as the westward‐migrating diurnal and semi‐diurnal tides. Zonal mean maps of the amplitudes of these components are shown, determined from 40 days' observations during the northern hemisphere winter of 1991/92. The results show maximum amplitudes ∼5 K, with the diurnal tide strongest over the equator while the semi‐diurnal tide is strongest at mid‐latitudes. Comparisons are made with previous observations from the LIMS instrument and the lidar at Biscarrosse, France. While the ISAMS and LIMS results are consistent, several significant differences from the lidar results are noted. The conclusion is that information on the global diurnal and semi‐diurnal temperature tides in the middle atmosphere may be obtained from a relatively simple treatment of ISAMS data.

Galileo infrared imaging spectroscopy measurements at venus.

Science 253 (1991) 1541-1548

During the 1990 Galileo Venus flyby, the Near Infaied Mapping Spectrometer investigated the night-side atmosphere of Venus in the spectral range 0.7 to 5.2 micrometers. Multispectral images at high spatial resolution indicate substanmial cloud opacity variations in the lower cloud levels, centered at 50 kilometers altitude. Zonal and meridional winds were derived for this level and are consistent with motion of the upper branch of a Hadley cell. Northern and southern hemisphere clouds appear to be markedly different. Spectral profiles were used to derive lower atmosphere abundances of water vapor and other species.
