TIME RESOLVED LASER FLUOROSENSING - TRENDS AND APPLICATIONS
Fluorescent spectra from natural oil targets can be remotely sensed with available techniques of pulsed excitation and multi-spectral detection, so as to ensure a consistent analysis of their time evolution, with sufficient sensitivity to follow simultaneously the time decay of separated spectral regions on the scale of nanoseconds. Therefore different classes of oils can be monitored in terms of specific signatures, linking decay times, wavelength and emission efficiency of definite spectral components to the nature and composition of the oil in which they are contained. New criteria for fingerprinting can be derived on this basis. Considerations concerning the monitoring of fluorescent and scattering phenomena in the water column, are performed.
