Laser induced Fluorescence spectroscopy (LIF) 

Laser induced Fluorescence spectroscopy (LIF) can be used to complement other spectroscopy techniques such as Raman and reflectance spectroscopy to identify and characterise materials. Remote UV LIF spectroscopy at standoff distances of upto tens of metres can be used to conveniently analyse any spot on a monument/object from the ground level without having to move the instrument. Given the non-invasive nature of the technique, it can also be used for mapping an area remotely (fluorescence mapping).
