Underwater Ultraviolet Raman Spectrometer
The Underwater Ultraviolet Raman Spectrometer(UURS) is a sensor used to measure concentrations of dissolved chemicals directly from their ultraviolet absorption spectrum. A variety of chemicals absorb light in the UV and each of these chemicals has a unique absorption spectrum. We can determine the concentration of these chemicals directly, with no chemical manipulation, by measuring the absorption spectrum of seawater in the UV and then deconvolving the spectra to yield the concentration of each component.
