Abstract
Ultra-compact, nanosecond-class spaceflight-compatible UV lasers are finding increasing application in laser desorption, excitation, and ionization analytical applications on planetary missions, such as the detection and characterization of potential molecular biosignatures on Mars or icy moon surfaces. A short pulsed, solid state, UV laser is under development with selectable pulse energy capabilities for optimized sample ion production at a planetary surface.
