Standoff detection and imaging of explosives using CARS

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We demonstrate real-time standoff detection and imaging of trace explosives using collinear, backscattered Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy (CARS). We present identification in milliseconds and provide hyperspectral images of nanograms of explosives from meters away.
