Use a small 532 nm pulsed laser with a 0.1 mJ/pulse energy operating at 1 kHz Use a ultra-compact spectrometer with 1-inch collection optics and working distance of several centimeters. Perform Raman spectroscopy from a miniature device and allow investigation of mineralogy, biology, fluorescent trace elements, and biological materials with a very high resolution objective (a laser spot size 10 µm x 5 mm). Advance this instrument from basic research to laboratory demonstration for future Astronaut’s health monitoring in space, Europa lander mission, Mars Sample Return, Lunar South Pole-Aitken Basin Sample Return, and other planetary bodies
