16 October 2002 Optical design of a reflectance/Raman confocal microspectrometer
Author Affiliations +
A miniaturized instrument for systematic planetary mineralogy is presented, and the optical design of the component parts is discussed. The instrument combines the following capabilities: wide field color imaging, confocal imaging at two different resolution/range levels, reflectance spectroscopy in the 400-2500 nm region with a resolution of 10nm, and Raman spectroscopy over 4000 cm-1 with an average resolution of 3.3 cm-1. The instrument can also serve as an expandable platform for adding fluorescence spectroscopy, or for examining samples from a distance of several meters while using the same spectrometer.
