CCT-OOE-20171114- Stray Light

Stray Light Workshop

14-15 November 2017

Scope

Space instruments are more and more demanding on both image quality and radiometric accuracy. This requires reducing stray light, by careful design and manufacturing and, when needed, calibration. Stay light includes scatter by optics and structures, ghost reflections, unwanted diffraction orders etc.

Dealing with stray light involves a number of technics : efficient and versatile black coatings; fine modeling with dedicated software; scatter and contamination assessment; and, last but not least, experience return. The present workshop shall cover recent advances in all these fields.

Aims of the workshop

The present workshop is organized by the Optics and Opto-electronics CCT (Centre for Technical Competence) http://cct.cnes.fr/content/optique-et-optoélectronique. The technical committee includes CNES, ESA, ASTRIUM Defence & Space, EADS SODERN and Thales Alenia Space. We wish to gather the scientific and industrial communities involved in stray light, both in Europe and worldwide, in order to share their recent developments, assess the state of the art and identify future needs.

Previous CCT workshops have dealt with stray light (1998, 2003 and 2010), star trackers (2000), optical coatings (2001 and 2003) and contamination control (2002). The ESA workshop on innovative technologies for space optics (2015) and ICSO conference (2016) included sessions on straylight and scattering issues.
