Detection of Munitions Grade Chemical Warfare Agents using Handheld Raman

AppNote RAD005: Detection of Munitions Grade Chemical Warfare Agents


Unlike ultrapure laboratory grade chemicals, munitions grade CWAs used in attacks are likely to contain impurities from the storage container, degradation, or unreacted precursors, all of which often cause fluorescence problems. In order to minimize fluorescence Progeny ResQ uses a longer wavelength 1064 nm laser, which leads to more reliable identifications and short measurement times.
