Lunar & Planetary Laboratory: The Next-Generation Laboratory Experiments on Planetary Materials

Laboratory experiments have been found to be extremely important in the field of planetary and exoplanetary science.

In this talk, I will introduce my envisioned next-generation laboratory research and my previous and current works on achieving these visions. I will include four topics: 1) using material science techniques to study planetary materials, 2) collaborative laboratory research on planetary and exoplanetary haze analogs, 3) the next-generation planetary regolith analog materials, and 4) building a robust laboratory database to better understand various atmospheric and surface processes on Titan and exoplanets. I will also elaborate on how such laboratory work could power next-generation space missions such as the Dragonfly mission to Titan and the James Webb Space Telescope.
