Delettrez, C., Griffin, Matthew Joseph, Naour, C., Church, S. and Chabaud, J.-P. 1994. The detector signal processing chain of the ISO long wavelength spectrometer. Experimental Astronomy 4 (3-4) , pp. 213-235. 10.1007/BF01580783

This paper describes the analogue signal processing chain for the detectors in the Long Wavelength Spectrometer (LWS) to be flown on board the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) satellite. The satellite, its mission, and the on-board experiments are briefly reviewed, and the configuration of the LWS Detector Subsystem is described. Two possible signal readout and amplification schemes, based on the Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA) and the Integrating Amplifier (IA) are discussed. The reasons for the choice of the IA for the LWS are outlined. The design of the complete LWS detector signal chain is presented.
