Infrared filter performance in optical instruments

What is it about?

System aspects of filter radiometer optics used to sense planetary atmospheres are described.

Why is it important?

The lenses, beamsplitters, and filters in long-wavelength channels of the Mars Observer Pressure Modulator Infrared Radiometer (PMIRR) are assessed both individually and as a system.

The filters described in this paper are to measure aerosol and radiation balance of the Martian atmosphere.
