GhoSST is a database on “spectroscopy of solids” of planetary and astrophysical interests covering a wide range of natural and synthetic solid samples (but also some liquids) with special focuses on low temperature ices & molecular solids, hydrated minerals, organics and carbonaceous materials, and cosmo-materials (meteorites, micro-meteorites & IDPs). Their spectroscopic properties are measured, either at IPAG or in international facilities, over a large wavelength range (Visible to Far-IR, but also XANES) with various types of spectroscopic techniques (transmission of thin films, crystals & grains in pellets, bidirectional reflectance & BRDF of granular or compact surfaces, microscopy of grains, Raman scattering & fluorescence emission of grains, …) mostly in a set of environmental cells designed to reproduce the planetary conditions (low to high temperature, vacuum, gas phase, adsorption, irradiation, …). Several high level products such as optical constants, band lists and vibration mode parameters are also provided through theoretical analysis and modelling of the data.

GhoSST is the precursor of SSHADE. Now it is one of the database of SSHADE.
Its former standalone database & interface is still open at until all its data are transfered to GhoSST @ SSHADE
