Next Generation Neutron Spectrometer
How do we develop the next generation neutron gamma-ray instrument?
In collaboration with Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL), we worked on the Mars Science Laboratory Dynamic Albedo of Neutrons instrument, neutron and gamma-ray instrument development, and new proposal opportunities. We parterend on hosting workshops that explored working with and interpreting planetary neutron and gamma-ray data among ASU students, LANL planetary scientists and outside experts.
- Attended the Santa Fe Institute’s First Annual InterPlanetary Festival in June 2018.
- Two ASU students interned at LANL during Summer 2018.
- Initiated a collaboration with LANL on the LunaH-Map Miniature Neutron Spectrometer (Mini-NS) calibration.
- Hosted a successful workshop in which we exchanged information on current work, discussed the state of the science, and brainstormed future collaborations.
