Description

Mars Science LaboratoryThe capability for simultaneous multispecies detection, rapid analysis, high sensitivity, and high spatial resolution make laser spectroscopy technologies very attractive for the in-situ characterization of organic, mineralogical, and chemical species during planetary exploration. Laser spectroscopy (Raman, LIBS, LINF) has acquired maturity in planetary exploration through prototype development and dedicated material characterization in the lab and in analogue settings. In this talk I will present several of these instruments and discuss their path-to-flight as a model for future technology developments.
