Applied Infrared Spectroscopy Lab

Atmospheric research of primary planets with ground and spacecraft observations by methods of high resolution spectroscopy in ultraviolet, visible light, and infrared. Development of advanced aircraft equipment for spectral sensing of planetary atmospheres. Computer simulation of planetary climates and evolution of planetary atmospheres with the use of high performance supercomputing systems and 3-D general circulation models. Development of high resolution heterodyne spectrometry equipment. Space project Driada (Mermaid-2). The aim is to test new measurement methods of high resolution spectra and GHG reconcentration

Laboratory of Applied Infrared Spectroscopy was founded at MIPT’s Department of Problems in Physics and Energetics in October 2011, following the results of the second Megagrant program funded by the Russian Government. 

The Space Research Institute RAS being among its research sites, the lab’s research activities have a great potential for applicability. The laboratory will be directly involved in the newest Roscosmos aircraft equipment projects, and its future alumni will be bringing their experience and skills into the development of the aerospace industry. One of the key areas of focus is promoting international cooperation in fundamental space research, which will contribute to the global image of Phystech as a research institution. Among the lab’s staff members are three DScs, ten PhDs, four postgraduates, and six undergraduates. 

Field of research 

In order to outline the areas of research, several examples of the lab’s accomplishments in 2001 are given below. The data collected from celestial observation of the Martian atmosphere was used in the search of methane - the level of its atmospheric content was close to the predicted figure. The upper limits for C2H6 and SO2 were determined. The study of gravity waves continued with the use of molecular oxygen emission variation in the OMEGA experiment. A computer simulation of microphysical processes in Martian aerosols was carried out. 

Mermaid-ISS observations, aimed at testing new methods of measurement of GHG emissions in the Earth’s atmosphere, are still in progress, as well as the development of the control system of ozone content in the Earth’s atmosphere: Ozonometer-TM (to be used in the ISS installation of 4 Ionosfera satellites) and Ozonometer-Z (for the Zond satellite to form the second orbit group Ionozond together with Ionosfera satellites) 

Projects

The laboratory has set the following objectives: 
• Atmospheric research of primary planets with ground and spacecraft observations by methods of high resolution spectroscopy in ultraviolet, visible light, and infrared 
• Development of advanced aircraft equipment for spectral sensing of planetary atmospheres 
• Computer simulation of planetary climates and evolution of planetary atmospheres with the use of high performance supercomputing systems and 3-D general circulation models 
• Development of high resolution heterodyne spectrometry equipment 
 • Space project Driada (Mermaid-2). The aim is to test new measurement methods of high resolution spectra and GHG reconcentration.
