Paper Abstract

Recent work performed in this laboratory has demonstrated the feasibility of using tunable filter technologies in place of dispersive spectrometers and fixed filtering devices for the purpose of creating field transportable standoff Raman imaging systems. Recently, a development in the area of polymer science has led to the production of polymer mirrors which are lightweight compared to glass mirrors of similar size. In addition, the techniques used to produce these polymer mirrors make it easy to design low f/pound optical devices, with much higher optical speeds than identically sized glass mirrors. The performance of a low f/pound polymer mirror system in combination with a liquid crystal tunable filter for standoff Raman chemical imaging is demonstrated and evaluated.
