Hayabusa Near Infrared Spectrometer (NIRS)

    Description

    The Near Infrared Spectrometer (NIRS) on Hayabusa was designed to study the mineralogy and physical properties of the surface of asteroid 25143 Itokawa. NIRS has a 64 channel InGaAs photodiode array detector and a diffraction grating combined with a prism. The detector covered wavelengths from 0.76 to 2.1 microns with a dispersion per pixel of 23.6 nm. The field of view is 0.1 x 0.1 degrees. Over 80,000 spectra were obtained from September to November 2005 at solar phase angles from 0 to 38 degrees.
