Paper Abstract

The next Japanese earth observing hyperspectral/multispectral imager mission, the HISUI (Hyper-spectral Imager SUIte) mission, is currently underway. In order to guarantee the hyperspectral images with a high spatial and wavelength resolution, it is necessary to evaluate the difference of the spectral sensitivities among the detector devices arrayed twodimensionally and correct spectral and spatial misregistrations and the effect of stray light. Since there are tens of thousands of detectors in the two-dimensional-array sensor, they have to be evaluated in parallel, instead of point by point, with the special technique for hyperspectral imagers. Hence, the new calibration system which has high radiance with the spatial uniformity and widely tunable wavelength range is required instead of conventional lamp systems which have poor power to calibrate arrayed devices at once. In this presentation, a supercontinuum-source-based system for calibration of hyperspectral imagers and its preliminary performance are described. Supercontinuum light is white light with continuous and broad spectra, which is generated by nonlinear optical effects of ultrashort pulse lasers in photonic crystal fibers. Using the system, the relative spectral responsivity and spectral misregistration of the hyperspectral imager, which is consist of a polychromator and twodimensionally arrayed CCD, are measured.
