oli-serp ratio plot

We evaluated the effectiveness of the ExoMars Raman laser spectrometer (RLS) to determine the degree of serpentinization of olivine-rich units on Mars. We selected terrestrial analogs of martian ultramafic rocks from the Leka Ophiolite Complex (LOC) and analyzed them with both laboratory and flight-like analytical instruments. We first studied the mineralogical composition of the samples

Another step in the development of SuperCam. These days in taking place the SUPERCAM PDR meeting in Los Alamos National Laboratory. PDR stands for Preliminary Design Review, and is an important milestone in the development of every instrument. In this meeting the different teams and participants in the instrument, including this team, expose their work and advances

Raman analyses of thermolabile samples in various Martian conditions: implications for ExoMars Guillermo Lopez-Reyes, Rafael Navarro, Aurelio Sanz-Arranz, José Antonio Manrique and Fernando Rull The Raman Laser Spectrometer instrument (RLS) onboard the ExoMars rover will fly to Mars in 2018. This rover will provide powdered samples to a suite of instruments inside the analytical laboratory
