Planetary Emissivity Laboratory (DLR, Berlin) is the only spectroscopic infrastructure worldwide that offers the opportunity to measure emissivity of fine-grained powder materials, bulk materials and coatings at temperatures up to 1000°C across the whole infrared wavelength range. PEL is currently supporting a wide range of planetary missions including ESA MarsExpress, VenusExpress and Rosetta, NASA MESSENGER, JAXA Hayabusa II. PEL also is highly utilised by industrial customers working for example on rapid prototyping or spacecraft isolation materials. PEL also can provide transmittance and reflectance measurements for the visible to the far-infrared spectral range. Contact person: Jorn Helbert
