Optical depolarization properties of surfaces illuminated by coherent light.
An experimental investigation of the depolarization characteristics of complex surfaces illuminated by 6328-A laser radiation was made on a large scale polarimeter. Measurements were made on… Expand
Coherence-polarization phenomena in remote sensing
The importance of polarization phenomena in remote sensing by electromagnetic means is discussed briefly. With active sensor systems using microwave or laser sources the radiation is very likely to… Expand
Optics in the Orbiting Astronomical Observatory
- H. Hallock
- 1 March 1962
The NASA Orbiting Astronomical Observatory (OAO) is a precisely stabilized spacecraft designed to carry large photoelectric astronomical telescopes. General background-information is presented, and… Expand
Photometric and polarimetric mapping of water turbidity and water depth
A Digital Photometric Mapper (DPM) was used in the Fall of 1971 in an airborne survey of New York and Boston area waters to acquire photometric, spectral and polarimetric data. The object of this… Expand
Techniques for reducing television pictures from the Celescope experiment on the Orbiting Astronomical Observatory.
THE POTENTIAL ROLE OF OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS IN THE EXPLORATION OF MARS
The effectiveness of space missions, such as those related to Mars exploration, can be measured in te rms of the quality and quantity of new information made available to the scientific community. Expand
