Exomars Raman Libs

Lead Research Organisation: University of Leicester
Department Name: Physics and Astronomy


The UK is a key player in the development of the CCD camera for the Raman/LIBS imaging spectrometer instrument, which is currently one of the ESA recommended instruments on the Pasteur Rover Exobiology Payload. This proposal will lead to the development of the camera system for the flight model instrument and the provision of scientific support to the programme. The proposal draws on major UK strengths in CCD technology, custom flight electronics design and also world leadership in the detection of life signatures using Raman spectroscopy.
