Explosives Identification With 1064 nm Dispersive Raman Spectroscopy

While traditional near-infrared Raman systems at 785 nm may allow automated, non-contact identification of several explosive substances, they are still prone to interfering fluorescence. The 1064 nm dispersive Raman system offers reduced interference and higher prediction accuracy, while preserving the rugged, field-proven architecture of conventional near-infrared Raman systems. This application note presents a study of explosive materials and subsidiary compounds analyzed using BaySpec’s 785 nm and 1064 nm dispersive Raman systems.
