LIBS Testing in a Venus Environment

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Demonstrate the feasibility of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) in a high temperature, high pressure, CO2 environment analogous to the conditions near the surface of Venus. Develop quantitative constraints on the capabilities and limitations of LIBS in a Venus surface environment.

Configure LIBS system to view samples in the Venus chamber Confirm STP results for LIBS in Venus Chamber configuration Conduct high temperature/high pressure experiments on Columbia River Basalt.
