The surface of Mercury has long been known to be low in ferrous iron. Spectral reflectance data from the MESSENGER spacecraft do not show a ferrous absorption band near 1 μm, complicating mineralogical analysis of Mercury's surface. With careful calibration, however, these data can yield new constraints on the maximum amount of ferrous iron that can(More)
The Institute for Planetary Research has an expertise in spectroscopy of minerals, rocks, meteorites, and organic matter, build up in more than two decades. The available equipment allows spectroscopy from the visible to TIR range using bi-conical reflection, transmission and emission spectroscopy. The institute has an outstanding heritage in designing and(More)
