« Back to Oil Testing Kit

A collection of research papers related to the laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) spectroscopy techniques in the Oil Testing Kit.

Research papers

I'll go through and get properly formatted citations soon:

Patsayeva et al, 2000 - Laser Spectroscopy of Mineral Oils on the Surface of Water

Moise, N., Aurelia Vasile, M.L. Pascu - Measuring of water and soil contamination with oil components using laser induced fluorescence transmitted through optical fibres

O'Neil, R.A., Buja Bijunas, L., & Rayner, D.M. - Field performance of a laser fluorosensor for the detection of oil spills

Bublitz, J, M. et al - Fiber-optic laser-induced fluorescence probe for the detection of environmental pollutants

Kumke et al. - Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Polynuclear Aromatic Compounds in Environmental Monitoring

Tangential research

I found lots of papers that mentioned other pollutant detection techniques, so I thought I'd list some of them here too:

Hussain et al - Monitoring and assessment of toxic metals in Gulf War oil spill contaminated soil using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (summary)

Yamamoto et al, 1996 Detection of Metals in the Environment Using a Portable Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Instrument
