Abstract

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a promising tool for elemental chemical analysis in planetary science, because it allows real-time and fast in-situ determination of the elemental composition of materials down to minute concentrations. The technique requires no special preparation of samples, can provide high lateral resolution (as low as several tenths μm), depth profiling (down to mm) and, therefore, is not disturbed by dust layers. Miniaturized LIBS instruments are currently considered for the next NASA (Mars Science Laboratory) and ESA (ExoMars) missions to Mars, as well as studied for the international Europa Lander Mission. Here we present the LIBS laboratory facility at the German Aerospace Center in Berlin for the chemical elemental analysis under simulated planetary (Mars, Europa) conditions. The main purpose of the system is the study of the LIBS capability for in-situ spectroscopy for diverse planetary missions as well as the development of a LIBS spectral database under simulated planetary conditions for planetary analogue materials.
