Paper Abstract

Four wavelengths (266, 355, 428, and 532 nm) generated from a prototype laser fluorosensor system were used to investigate the fluorescence spectral and temporal characteristics of crude and refined Kuwaiti oils in the laboratory. Temporal and spectral measurements were gathered for fresh and naturally weathered oil samples. Furthermore, a principal-components algorithm was developed for the purpose of identifying and classifying unknown oils.
