Type of materials:

- minerals, rocks, meteorites, planetary analogue materials (like JSC-1 lunar regolith simulant and others)

Laboratory techniques:

  1. Bi-directional reflectance measurement device, with both incident and viewing zeniths vary from 0 to 65 deg., spanning a phase angle range of 2.7-130 deg., at 3 wavelengths: 0.633, 0.532, and 0.473 micron (currently only data at 0.633 micron available); measurements are done in the principal plane only; 
  2. FT-IR reflectance spectra of minerals 


Products of the lab: 

  1. BRDF at 0.633 micron, of various minerals, rocks and meteorites
  2. Spectral reflectance at fixed configuration (approximately 45-45 biconical) from 0.5-25 microns for various minerals, rocks and meteorites;

Applications: planetary
