Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


This work concentrates on the use of Raman microscopy as a space application, namely for use as a tool for in situ planetary investigations (MIRAS -Mineral investigations by in situ Raman spectroscopy). Two different types of spectrometers were considered for the MIRAS study. As supporting laboratory experiments for the MIRAS study to demsontrate the great potential of Raman microscopy for mineral investigations, measurements on SNC (Shergottite, Nakhlite, Chassigny) Mars meteorites are discussed.
