Photonics Spectra
Jun 2007
Aurora Design & Technology of Clearwater, Fla., has announced that it will design and develop optics for NASA’s Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite Mission. The mission, scheduled to launch in 2009, aims to confirm the presence or absence of water ice in the shadowed craters on the moon’s poles. The optics will be used to view the ejecta cloud that rises after blasting the floor of one of the craters and to measure the contents of the resulting debris.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
