Abstract

We present a dual-channel mobile lidar system based on laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) for real-time standoff detection and concentration distribution analysis of tryptophan. The system employs an ultraviolet laser excitation source and signal detectors for receiving fluorescence signals within two different wavelength bands. The performed experiments measured tryptophan aerosols at two different standoff distances. Moreover, distilled water and ethanol solutions were also detected for comparison. The results show that the system can detect LIF signals of tryptophan, give early warnings, locate the diffusion sources, and monitor the variation of the aerosol concentration distribution in real time.
