Abstract:

Fiber optics were used to interface a Raman spectrometer to a long (1 m) sample tube, with the objective being increased sensitivity. Internal reflection of the laser light and the Raman scatter within the sample tube permitted a long solution length to be sampled, increasing the Raman sensitivity by factors of 30-50 over conventional capillary tube sampling systems. In addition, the sample was subjected to much lower power densities than with systems employing a focused beam, thus minimizing radiation damage. Detection limits of 10−9 to 10−8 M were achieved for resonance Raman scatterers, and normal Raman scatterers could be detected at the 1 × 10−5 M level.
