Abstract
When high powered laser pulses are focused in air, light filaments with extremely long propagation distances and high intensities can form. In this STTR Phase I project, we will investigate the potential of laser light filaments for sensing applications. Direct comparisons will be made between ultra-violet and near-infrared filaments and an assessment of suitability these filaments for standoff or remote sensing will be made. Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of light filament sensing. In Phase II a prototype instrument based on light filaments will be constructed and tested.
