Abstract
To support a variety of applications in environmental chemical sensingincluding homeland security, defense, and commercial applicationswe will develop a UV-enhanced Raman spectroscopy system which demonstrates improved SNR by up to 5 orders of magnitude and spectral resolution by up to 2 orders of magnitude, compared to standard Raman spectroscopy. Along with our Phase I performance results, we will present a draft design for a compact, integrated, rugged instrument, to be developed in Phase II.
