Overview
Drs. Michael Shepard and Aaron Lapointe, from the US Department of Homeland Security and US Army’s Night Vision Laboratory, respectively, will co-chair this session on government applications of laser spectroscopy. The session will begin with a joint presentation by the co-chairs on the differences in requirements between the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense. Other presentations within this session will focus upon laser based methods of detection for explosives detection. Techniques of discussion will include Raman and Infrared Spectroscopy as well as other emerging spectroscopic techniques.
