We are one of the first two teams who proposed to develop Planetary Raman Spectroscopy for the surface explorations of planetary bodies in our solar system. Our efforts have been supported by NASA PIDDP, MIDP, ASTEP, ASTID, MatiSSE, ICEE-2, and DALI programs. Parallel with the hardware development, we developed instrument sciences, i.e., to investigate the planetary science questions that could be answered by the new group of instruments.
