Project Description

Enhanced In Situ Sampling Capabilities with a Compact UV Laser System

"Enhanced In Situ Sampling Capabilities with a Compact UV Laser System" explores the performance of a miniaturized and highly robust solid-state laser system that can support in situ sampling of planetary environments and small bodies coupled with mass spectrometric analysis and packaged in a flight-compatible housing.

A miniaturized, solid-state frequency-quadrupled Nd:YAG laser system  will be tested for performance and mechnically packaged to support future mission-driven instrumentation.
