Tunable laser absorption spectrometer

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

For this effort, we propose to develop a tunable laser spectrometer source for future NASA planetary missions. The proposed technology would improve the traditional concept of lidar instrument. This effort will focus on investigating the tunable laser transmitter concept.

This work greatly leverages our experience from developing trace-gas laser sounders. Specifically, we will investigate advanced tunable laser concepts.
