Scientists at NASA and Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, N.Y., are borrowing a technique from plasma physics and developing it for use as a gas chromatography (GC) detector on planetary missions.

Daniel R. Kojiro of NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.; Valery A. Sheverev of Polytechnic University; and coworkers are developing Penning ionization electron spectroscopy (PIES) as a detection method for GC. Kojiro presented the work twice at the . . .
