Two Harvey Mudd College students helped develop an optical survey prototype that uses lasers to identify the presence of living organisms within rock and ice. The system, which provides an economical way to study samples without destroying them, may one day be used to identify life on other planets.

Physics major Alex Hall '12 and engineering major Steven Hang '13 worked with Greg Lyzenga, professor of physics, and Michael Storrie-Lombardi, M.D., executive director of the Kinohi Institute, to design and build the prototype during the summer of 2011.
