Compact precision wavelength reference for O2 sensing at 1.27 um for ASCENDS, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Compact precision wavelength reference for O2 sensing at 1.27 um for ASCENDS, Phase I
We propose to develop compact absolute wavelength references to weak molecular transitions, which is a challenge characteristic to space-based active sensing. The ASCENDS mission (Active Sensing of CO2 over Nights, Days, and Seasons) will be the first satellite-based mission employing precision laser spectroscopy for active sensing of molecules in space.
