With deep sorrow, we bid farewell to our esteemed colleague, Professor Sanz Requena, who has recently passed away. He was an exceptional scientist and a skilled communicator, dedicated to the dissemination of science and education. Professor Sanz was a valued member of our Research Group and a respected faculty member at the University of Valladolid. […]

SuperCam is a highly integrated remote-sensing instrumental suite for NASA’s Mars 2020 mission. It consists of a co-aligned combination of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Time-Resolved Raman and Luminescence (TRR/L), Visible and Infrared Spectroscopy (VISIR), together with sound recording (MIC) and high-magnification imaging techniques (RMI). They provide information on the mineralogy, geochemistry andmineral context around the

Aurelio Sanz‐Arranz, Jose A. Manrique‐Martinez, Jesus Medina‐Garcia, Fernando Rull‐Perez In this paper, our research group proposes a simple solution to a usual problem that appears in the Raman analysis of some substances, which is the presence of weak Raman signals, probably in combination with a high‐intensity luminescence background, affected by the presence of distortions in
