A new Raman spectroscopic system designed by Jacobs and IS Instruments is able to detect a weak laser signal even when located meters away from a target. The system increases safety and lowers cost when used to detect hazardous materials, such as radioactive contamination.
Currently, Raman spectroscopy is rarely used in nuclear decommissioning, due to access constraints and high-radiation fields restricting the typical working range of the spectrometer. The new method relies on remote vehicle operation to adapt to harsh settings, and retains Raman spectroscopy’s effectiveness in measuring chemical compounds.
The Raman probe attaches to multiple, various robotic and remotely operated platforms. The probe is able to reach…READ MORE
