A novel method for space object identification is proposed, based on full Stokes spectropolarimetry in the visible and near-infrared wavelength range. Space objects that have been previously detected and are illuminated by the sun can be observed with a telescope to simultaneously obtain intensity, spectra, and polarimetry, and compose light...

Does life exist outside our Solar System A first step towards searching for life outside our Solar System is detecting life on Earth by using remote sensing applications. One powerful and unambiguous biosignature is the circular polarization resulting from the homochirality of biotic molecules and systems. We aim to investigate the...

LOUPE, the Lunar Observatory for Unresolved Polarimetry of the Earth, is a small, robust spectro-polarimeter for observing the Earth as an exoplanet. Detecting Earth-like planets in stellar habitable zones is one of the key challenges of modern exoplanetary science. Characterizing such planets and searching for traces of life requires the...

Many biologically produced chiral molecules such as amino acids and sugars show a preference for left or right handedness (homochirality). Light reflected by biological materials such as algae and leaves therefore exhibits a small amount of circular polarization that strongly depends on wavelength. Our Life Signature Detection polarimeter ...

This research is focused on the feasibility assessment of a novel technology of metasurfaces in order to design a spectropolarimeter with the thickness of a few micrometers integrated on the detector array. The motivation behind the research is miniaturization of state-of-the-art spectropolarimeters. The requirements for the instrument are...

In the search for understanding the formation and evolution of a solar system, terrestrial planets & any exoplanetary systems, the understanding of the evolution & formation of giant planet's play a crucial role. The primary goal is to study the atmospheres, their physical & chemical processes governed by gases, clouds, and hazes....

CONTEXT. Spectropolarimetry is proposed as a relatively new option in the field of remote sensing for the characterization of aerosol particles and the investigation of cloud properties, that are key factors for the enhancement of climate model's accuracy. The use of multi-wavelength, multi-angle information of the scattered flux and...

In this thesis, a dual-beam design concept for the LOUPE (Lunar Observatory for Unresolved Polarimetry of Earth) spectropolarimeter is presented based on the work by Karalidi [2012] and Hoeijmakers [2013]. The mission statement of LOUPE is: LOUPE shall do spectropolarimetry of the Earth from the Moon in order to obtain reference data for...

SPEX (Spectropolarimeter for Planetary EXploration) is an innovative, compact remote-sensing instrument for detecting and characterizing aerosols. With its 1-liter volume it is capable of full linear spectropolarimetry, without moving parts. High precision polarimetry is performed through encoding the degree and angle of linear polarization of...
