Abstract

Laser-induced fluorescence is a powerful measurement method for determining the concentration of organic pollutants as well as the amount of algae in water. It can be applied in remote sensing of natural waters and has the advantages of high speed and sensitivity. In this paper, we present a compact handheld fluorosensor system for water quality assessment. The power of the technique is demonstrated in measurements at a river system in South China.
