Miniaturized Waveguide Fourier Transform Spectrometer

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

To demonstrate the efficacy of a spectrometer-on-chip system for in-situ and remote monitoring of planetary atmospheric and surface chemistry, physics, and surface mineralogy using spectral signatures.

To characterize the IR optical properties of the metal-coated hollow waveguide ensemble; configure the Hollow Waveguide FTS (HWFTS) chip in such a way that we maximize signal-to-noise; carry out full radiometric testing of this implementation and acquire spectra of standard gas cells.
