The European Space Agency (ESA) is organizing a professional course dedicated to Space Optical Engineering. The course will take place from 2 – 13 May 2016 in Poltu Quatu, Sardegna. More information on the particular topics that will be covered can be found here. Together with other professionals, Berlich Optical System Engineering will provide a hands-on course on optical system design in particular with respect to space instruments.
Our contribution to the International Conference on Space Optics 2014 with the topic "Radiometric assessment method for diffraction effects in Hyperspectral Imagers applied to the Earth Explorer #8 Mission Candidate FLEX " has been published in the latest conference proceedings. In the corresponding paper, we present a mathematical approach that efficiently evaluates diffraction effects within pushbroom type hyperspectral imaging systems based on a Fourier analysis. It is shown that considering the conventional diffraction at the systems entrance pupil only, significantly overestimates the stray light contribution. In fact, a correct assessment necessitates taking into account the joint influence of the entrance pupil, the spectrometer slit as well as the dispersion element.
