The miniaturized Moessbauer Spectrometer MIMOS-2A is part of the scientific payload onboard the ESA Exomars Mars Rover under primary investigation at University of Mainz. At vH&S a new Xray- and Gamma detector readout electronics is designed and built for engineering and flight models. Purpose of the instrument is the in-situ analysis of the mineralogical and elementary composition of Martian surface rocks and soil. The Sensor makes use of eight high resolution Silicon Drift Detectors, providing extremely high Xray energy resolution and signal to noise ratio.
MIMOS-2A is developed under contract of Institut für Anorganische und Analytische Chemie Universität Mainz.
