Research Institution
It is proposed to design and develop a fast, high-performance, portable, field-operable chemical-biological imaging-sensing system, which consists of a spectrometer and a “system-on-a-chip” data acquisition, processing, and analysis unit. The proposed system will possess a significantly enhanced ability to detect and selectively analyze chemical and biological agents, through the integration of a portable Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer and high-performance field programmable gate array (FPGA) technologies. The resulting system is small in size, rugged in design, easy to use, and consumes minimal power.
