Paper Abstract

This manuscript summarizes the effort to develop a field- portable Fourier Transform Infrared instrument that can perform a quick and accurate chemical analysis of unknown waste materials at Air Force bases without removing a sample for analysis. We report that devices containing a novel infrared fiber optic sensor can remotely detect and quantify the range of liquid hazardous waste typically found at Air Force bases.
