MIPAS-FT is an airborne Fourier-transform infrared emission sounder. Complex Fourier transformation of two-sided interferograms taken in flight shows strong anomalies in the correction phase, which are eliminated by explicitly taking into account beam-splitter emission. The latter is described mathematically.
