A Polarimetric Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor

  • Li-Jen Cheng


This paper reports recent field test results of a Polarimetrie hyperspectral imaging prototype sensor using a noncollinear acousto-optic tunable filter as a wavelength sorter and a polarizing beam splitter. The objective of this work is to evaluate the AOTF-PHI technology for a variety of remote sensing applications.
