Characterization of Firefly, an Imaging Spectrometer Designed for Airborne Measurements of Solar-Induced Fluorescence

Abstract: FIREFLY (Fluorescence Imaging of REd and Far-red Light Yield) is a compact, fine-resolution imaging spectrometer that was designed and assembled by Headwall Photonics (Fitchburg, MA, USA) in collaboration with NASA scientists for airborne measurements of Solar-Induced Fluorescence (SIF). FIREFLY is integrated into the next generation of NASA Goddard’s Lidar, Hyperspectral and Thermal airborne imager (G-LiHT; www.gliht.nasa.gov), providing a complete system for measuring, interpreting and scal…
