Abstract
Aerosolized pathogenic microorganisms represent a threat for the populations. Long range detection of such menaces is greatly attractive because it provides a spatial and dynamical description of areas being contaminated within seconds. A technique based on spectrally resolved Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF) LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) has been used as a potential approach to detect and classify a bacterial cloud. However, it is anticipated that the growth media used for the culture of microorganism contributes to the spectral signature observed and interfere with the classification process. This work aims to assess the magnitude of this interference.
