Abstract

The work aims study, participation and follow-up work in progress in CRAAM, School of Engineering at UPM, in cooperation with the CCS at UNICAMP and other universities and companies in the country and abroad, aiming to bultd a photometer using a THz optical-acoustic detector (Golay cell), low-pass and band-pass tests of characterization for application in photometry of solar flares. These are important new developments in this area, which should contribute to the technological advancement due to the novelty of the object. The project aims to end the operation and data acquisition from excess solar radiation in the THz bands 3 and 7 photometers with running out of the atmosphere on strastopheric ballon flights. The measures sought must be carried out in space because Earths atmosphere is essentially opaque to most of the THz frequency range (AU)
