The ground calibration of far ultraviolet scanning imaging spectrometer (FUSIS)
The far ultraviolet scanning imaging spectrometer (FUSIS) is used to measure the composition and distribution of the main molecules and atoms in the Earth s upper atmosphere. It is an important instrument in investigation of the physical and chemical processes in the Earth s upper atmosphere. FUSIS works between 120nm to 180nm, its spectral resolution is better than 1.0nm and its spatial resolution is 8 pixels. This paper describes a kind of ground calibration method and facility of FUSIS. The FUV light is invisible, so all works must be done in high vacuum.
