Abstract

A scanning photometer is described, utilizing a rotating wedge interference filter as the wavelength scanning element around 6300 Å. A detailed description of the filter production is given, emphasizing the procedure for in situ wavelength control during fabrication. Subsequently, the complete photometer is briefly described, and some results from its applications on an auroral sounding rocket flight are presented.
