Recent Techniques in Solar Optical Astronomy from Space

Part of the International Astronomical Union / Union Astronomique Internationale book series (IAUH, volume 1)


The article summarizes some of the recent advances in the techniques of solar space research, particularly over the last 4 years, in an attempt to review the current state of instrument technology. The present state of development in rocket and satellite vehicles for solar observations, far ultraviolet detectors, optical materials, ultraviolet reflection coatings, filters, and photographic film fogging, are among the topics described.
