Abstract
A SIMPLE TWO WAVELENGTH REMOTE FIBER OPTIC SPECTROMETER WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE MID INFRARED DETECTION OF ORGANOPHOSPHATE CHEMICAL AGENTS. OPTICAL FIBER WILL BE FABRICATED FROM FLUORIDE GLASSES WHICH ARE BEING DEVELOPED FOR LONG RANGE COMMUNICATION. THE SUBJECT OF SUITABLE LIGHT SOURCES AND DETECTORS FOR MID INFRARED SENSOR OPERATION WILL BE INVESTIGATED. DIFFERENT GEOMETRIES OF REMOTE GAS PROBE WILL BE TRIED INCLUDING AN EVANESCENTLY COUPLED GAS PROBE. FOR SPECIES IDENTIFICATION A MULTI WAVELENGTH FTIR FIBER SPECTROMETER WILL BE INVESTIGATED. PROJECTED LIMITS FOR DIRECT ABSORPTION AND PHOTOACOUSTIC SENSING ARE GIVEN AS A FUNCTION OF BANDSTRENGTH.
