Hands off spectroscopy

A new dual laser approach to analysing chemicals shouldn’t require the sample to be prepped and placed in the spectrometer. The surface of a suspect package at an airport or a contaminated material in a medical or environmental setting could be “scanned” via a standoff approach using the new technique, according to research I discuss in the latest issue of SpectroscopyNOW.
