  • The capability to analyze and detect the composition of distant samples (minerals, organics, and chemicals) in real time is of interest for various fields including detecting explosives, geological surveying, and pollution mapping. For the past 10 years, the University of Hawaii has been developing standoff Raman systems suitable for measuring Raman spectra of various chemicals in daytime or nighttime. In this article we present standoff Raman spectra of various minerals and chemicals obtained… CONTINUE READING
