Triple Isotope Water Analyzer for Extraplanetary Studies, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Triple Isotope Water Analyzer for Extraplanetary Studies, Phase I
In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to develop a miniature, high-resolution, low power, triple-isotope water analyzer for lunar and planetary exploration based on tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) in conjunction with LGR's patented Off-Axis Integrated Cavity Output Spectroscopy (Off-Axis ICOS) technique. This compact instrument will provide highly accurate quantification of H2^16O, HOD, H2^18O, and H2^17O (δD, δ1 More »
