Abstract
This article presents new hyperspectral imaging (HSI) results from a standoff chemical detection system that utilizes monolithic arrays of Distributed Feedback (DFB) Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) as a source, with each array element at a slightly different wavelength than its neighbor. In this rastering approach to HSI, analysis of analyte/substrate pairs benefits from a laser source with characteristics offered uniquely by a QCL Array. In addition to describing the HSI system developed, a description of experimental standoff detection results using the man-portable system from 1.4 meters are presented. We present HSI results on two very different chemical substrate pairs; trace solid PETN on aluminum and the liquid VX on polycarbonate.
