Paper Abstract

Raman spectroscopy has many characteristics that make it a viable method for monitoring contaminants in the environment [1 ,2]. Most significant for the work discussed in this presentation is the ability to transmit the Raman excitation (visible or NIR laser light)and the Raman scattering over long distances of optical fibers. This will allow one to operate at a workstation that is far removed from the actual site of contamination. The other advantage of Raman over similar in-situ optical methods of analysis is a high degree of molecular specificity. Raman is capable of providing molecular identification of the analyte.
