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.More »
Objectives in the proposed effort are to methodically characterize the performance and limits of the concept to the degree that sufficient scientific and engineering background is obtained.More »
