Instruments

Several instruments have already been built using surfaces evaluated using the ILENA experiment

  • CENA on Chandrayaan-1
    This instrument is designed to observer ENA flux emitted from the lunar surface.

  • IBEX-Lo on IBEX
    This instrument is designed to observe the ENA flux originating from the heliospheric termination shock and beyond.
  • LENA on IMAGE
    This instrument is designed to observe the ENA flux emerging from the magnetosphere of the earth.
  • The NICE prototype
    A prototype instrument to directly measure the inflow of interstellar neutral gas.
  • ENA on BepiColombo
    This instrument is designed to observe the ENA flux emitted from Mercury's surface.
