Paper Abstract

New methods are needed to analyze and monitor multicomponent unknown environments or media (an object), for example, air toxic mixtures or protein mixtures. The existing methods are basically a single-pass measurement and do not provide enough information. We propose an optical exploration approach, a multistep feedback controlled architecture that includes multiple measurements with systematic modification of an object to get additional data. We discuss various optical techniques to modify and probe the object. The data obtained from the multiple measurements allow the object properties (say, individual concentrations) to be evaluated. Experimental data on air toxic mixtures are presented.
