Spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) using 1064 nm excitation is demonstrated here to detect chemicals through a physical barrier such as a container. This excitation wavelength overcomes the issue of fluorescence from the target chemical, whilst retaining the benefits of the SORS technique for through-barrier detection. These advantages have a wide… CONTINUE READING
