Stray light analysis and testing of the SoloHI (solar orbiter heliospheric imager) and WISPR (wide field imager for solar probe) heliospheric imagers

The techniques for stray light analysis, optimization and testing are described for two space telescopes that observe the solar corona: the Solar Orbiter Heliospheric Imager (SoloHI) that will fly on the ESA Solar Orbiter (SolO), and the Wide Field Imager for Solar Probe (WISPR) that will fly on the NASA Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission. Imaging the solar corona is challenging, because the corona is six orders of magnitude dimmer than the Sun surface at the limb, and the coronal brightness continues to decrease to ten orders ...

Development of a high-temperature optical coating for thermal management on solar probe plus

NASA s Solar Probe Plus (SPP) is approaching within 9.5 solar radii from the center of the sun. The SPP thermal protection system (TPS) is a 2.7 meter heat shield. The heat shield reaches temperatures of 1400°C on its front surface, its worst thermal case, and is subjected to launch loads, its worst mechanical case. The front surface of the thermal protection system is coated with an optically white coating in order to reduce the front surface temperature of the TPS and reduce the resulting heat flow into the spacecraft. ...
