Event Details

The capability for simultaneous multispecies detection, rapid analysis, high sensitivity, and high spatial resolution make laser spectroscopy technologies very attractive for the in-situ characterization of organic, mineralogical, and chemical species during planetary exploration. Laser spectroscopy (Raman, LIBS, LINF) has acquired maturity in planetary exploration through prototype development and dedicated material characterization in the lab and in analogue settings. In this talk I will present several of these instruments and discuss their path-to-flight as a model for future technology developments.

SETI Institute

The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.

We believe we are conducting the most profound search in human history — to know our beginnings and our place among the stars.

The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to scientific research, education and public outreach.

Every week the SETI Institute hosts a lecture series that is open to the public, provides free PB&J's and gives people a unique opportunity to interact with some of the world's leading space scientists.
