A compact borehole, thermal-infrared radiometer and infrared reflectometer for the characterization of subsurface habitability and presence of water ice on Mars

Abstract:

One of the most important steps in the search for life on Mars is to determine if a specific sub-surface location it is "habitable", or that it provides the conditions and requirements to support life as we know it. In this thesis, I present a miniature, thermal-IR radiometer and reflectometer designed to determine temperature, the presence of water ice, and the discrimination of minerals, all necessary for a habitable environment.

A dual use detector was selected for the thermal a...
