PITTSBURGH, April 14, 2015 — ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) announces that Nathaniel R. Gomer, Ph.D, Senior Scientist will be presenting innovative results of the company’s work on the development of wide-field standoff UV Raman Imaging in collaboration with researchers at the University of South Carolina at the SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing (SPIE DSS) meeting in Baltimore, MD.

Dr. Gomer’s talk entitled, “The development of a wide-field, high-resolution UV Raman hyperspectral imager” will be presented during the “Chemical Sensing I” session (Session 5 of Conference 9455) on Wednesday, April 23 in Room 319 of the Baltimore Convention Center.  His discussion will provide attendees with an overview of the development of a novel standoff Raman hyperspectral imager based on a spatial heterodyne UV Raman spectrometer.

“It is a great opportunity for me to present the work we have completed to the homeland security community during SPIE DSS 2015 and have the opportunity for discussion and feedback on the project,” said Gomer.

“Standoff sensors for chemical and explosive threats based on UV Raman technology are currently limited by the throughput of existing optical systems,” said Matthew P. Nelson, Ph.D., Chief Scientist and Business Director at CISS. “This project is allowing us to exploit the spatial heterodyne technology developed by the team at the University of South Carolina to provide significant UV Raman throughput enhancements thus allowing more widespread use of this valuable spectroscopic technique.”

SPIE DSS is the industry’s most important scientific conference and exhibition on optics, IR imaging, lasers, and sensing for defense, security, industry, healthcare, and the environment.
