An illumination and detection architecture that illuminates a target for detecting a material of interest. The architecture includes an illumination component that illuminates the target using a predetermined light wavelength known to energize and thereby cause a detectable change in the desired chemical and/or compounds associated with the target in a particular way. The change is then captured by an image capture system and processed to determine the presence or absence detected of the desired material of interest at the target.
What is claimed is: 1. A portable handheld system, comprising:an illumination component as part of an integral unit that directs electromagnetic radiation of a predetermined wavelength at a target associated with a material of interest, and which electromagnetic radiation causes a change in the electromagnetic radiation wavelength to occur when in contact with the material of interest;a sensor component as part of the integral unit that senses the change in the electromagnetic radiation wavelength as change data;an image processing component as part of t...
