Probing of Hermean Exosphere By Ultraviolet Spectroscopy (PHEBUS) is a spectrometer that will fly on board of the BepiColombo mission to investigate the composition and dynamic of Mercury’s exosphere. Calibration of QM and FM instrument are on going. An approach based on the Mueller Matrix formalism is adopted to determine the pure efficiency of the instrument (PHEBUS). The results obtained show that this approach is a complete and versatile method to perform the radiometric calibration of a space instrument.

Abstract

Probing of Hermean Exosphere By Ultraviolet Spectroscopy (PHEBUS) is a spectrometer that will fly on board of the BepiColombo mission to investigate the composition and dynamic of Mercury’s exosphere. Calibration of QM and FM instrument are on going. An approach based on the Mueller Matrix formalism is adopted to determine the pure efficiency of the instrument (PHEBUS). The results obtained show that this approach is a complete and versatile method to perform the radiometric calibration of a space instrument.
