Ultra-Compact Optical Spectrometer for Organic Mapping, uCOSOM (microcosm), Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Ultra-Compact Optical Spectrometer for Organic Mapping, uCOSOM (microcosm), Phase I
We propose to develop a coke-can-size, 250 g, 400 mW instrument for mounting on small lander or rover arms: the ultra-Compact Optical Spectrometer for Organic Mapping (COSOM) instrument. Two core technologies enable the proposed instrument: a narrow linewidth, 235 nm, deep UV (DUV) semiconductor laser triode (LT), currently being developed by Photon System under DARPA funding; and a new uncooled, linear DUV CCD array detector with high quantum efficiency in the DUV with fast read rates a More »
