    Ultrafast Time-of-Flight Imaging Combats Telescope’s Stray Light Problem

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers at Centre Spatial de Liege (CSL) of the University of Liege have advanced the field of space engineering through a newly developed, laser-based method for the identification of the contributors and origins of stray light on space telescopes. As the power (and, as a result, imaging capabilities) of space telescopes continues to increase, the developed method is poised to help in the acquisition of even finer space images and the development of increasingly efficient space instruments.

    Stray light, which results in light reflections that damage the quality of images obtained via telescope and often leads to blurred images, has proved difficult to check and characterize through existing methods in the development stage of…
