We have developed a class of aperture coding schemes for Remote Raman
Spectrometers (RRS) that remove the traditional trade-off between
throughput and spectral resolution. As a result, the size of the
remote interrogation region can be driven by operational, rather than
optical considerations. In this paper we present the design of our
coded-aperture standoff spectroscopy system as well as experimental data collected while making remote measurements.© (2005) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
