Customer: Swedish Defence Forces Research Agency, FOI

 CHALLENGEFabry-Perot interferometer

Worldwide, government agencies and military branches are struggling with identifying evolving threats to national security such as concealed explosives, improvised explosive devices.


FOI and VTT have developed a system capable of precise selection of Raman shifts of explosives. System is based on VTT developed compact, high resolution (~0.2 nm @ FWHM) UV-FPI module.

  • Stable operation of the UV-FPI module under varying environmental conditions.
  • Eye-safe because of UV-Laser is used instead of visible laser.
