  1. Compact Raman Spectrometer For In-Situ Planetary Chemistry

    Amount: $123,631.00

    In this proposal, we demonstrate a new Raman imaging sensor based on a compact, CCD-mounted spectrometer. This enables high sensitivity and specificity for UV-Raman that will be capable of full-frame ...

    SBIRPhase I2016National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. Instrumentation for Multiple Radiation Detection Based On Novel Mercurous Halides for Nuclear Planetology

    Amount: $749,805.00

    Radiation detectors that sense gamma and neutron radiation are critical to the exploration of planetary surface composition. Among the key technological challenges is to have a suitable detector that ...
