Laser Fluorosensors for Remote Environmental Monitoring
Fluorescence spectroscopy is used in a wide range of disciplines as both a qualitative and a quantitative analytical technique. The development of the laser has now allowed this method to be adapted to the remote-sensing role of monitoring environmental parameters from the air. Many environmental pollutants have been shown to have characteristic fluorescence properties lending them to possible detection and identification by a laser fluorosensor.
