Portable fiber-optic Raman systems are being used to analyze chemical agents and other toxic chemicals in sealed glass containers. These containers include ampoules and bottles that are contents of chemical agent identification sets (CAIS) developed for use in training military personnel in chemical agent identification, safe handling, and decontamination. Real-time nonintrusive analysis of these sets is required so that the items containing chemical agents can be identified for proper disposal. This paper details the laboratory measurement of Raman spectra of chemical agents, Raman scattering cross sections of chemical agents, and the analysis of CAIS items in the field.
