What is currently being done to use fluorescence/emission sensing/detection for chemical threat agents?

DSIAC was tasked with determining what is currently being done with fluorescence, emission sensing, and detection methods for chemical threat agents.  A chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive DSIAC subject matter expert from QinetiQ collected and summarized information from open sources, breaking down how infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and quantum cascade laser technologies are used to detect chemical agents.
