Microhollow Glow Discharge Instrument for In Situ Lunar Surface Measurements
Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI) and Penn State University (PSU) propose to develop a highly sensitive spectrometer based on glow discharge plasma emission for the detection/classification of lunar soil components including minerals and adsorbed species (e.g. water). This is a broadly applicable technology for gases, aerosols, and solid samples and would complement technology that is already under development for detection of toxic species to monitor fire cleanup filtration systems on spacecraft.
