The area of security relates commonly to the detection of toxic, explosive and chemical substances in order to take appropiate and fast action upon the detection.

Technologies involved are often UV and NIR absorption spectroscopy for detection of gases as well as Raman spectroscopy for detection of fluids and solids.

Some of the key benefits of using these optical techniques are that they are fast (often detection can be done in milliseconds), detection can be done from a distance (often several meters) and even through non-transparent containers.
