The application of a novel mini-Raman Lidar to the standoff detection and identification of chemical spills is discussed. The new chemical sensor combines the spectral fingerprintign of solar-blind UV Raman spectroscopy with the principles of lidar to open a new venue of short-range, non- contact detection and identification of unknown substances on surfaces. In addition to discussing experimental result collected with a 'proof-of-principle' system, a next generation system, currently under development, is also presented.
