    Topic: Raman, Fluorescence, and Lidar Multi-Sensing Instrument for Planetary Surfaces and Atmosphere Characterization

    Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss an active remote sensing instrument by combining Raman, fluorescence spectroscopy, and lidar subsystems for robotic planetary missions. This instrument is suitable for multi-platform applications, such as aerial, lander, and rover systems, on planetary surfaces and atmospheres, including Mars, Moon, Jupiter’s Icy Moon-Europa, Asteroids, and other planets. This multi-sensing instrument is a highly sensitive, light-weight, miniature active remote sensing instrument that uses a 4-inch telescope, small spectrometer, compact Nd: YAG laser, miniature Intensified Charge-Coupled Device (ICCD) camera, Photomultiplier Tube (PMT), and a breadboard system. In this talk, we will discuss only the applications of Raman spectroscopy for detecting water, ice, dry ice, minerals, etc., and of using lidar remote sensing techniques for determining aerosol distribution and cloud profiling.

    Parking Information

    Directions for External Guests to HU:

    To park your car, please first goto the main gate of the university -- if you tell the officers at the gate that you are visiting the atmospheric sciences dept and need to park, they should be able to guide you from there.
