Micro-Raman spectroscopy has been utilized to examine the spectra of solid samples of α-UF5, β-UF5, UF6, three types of UO2F2, the powder residue from a static UF6 release, and γ-UO3. The spectra are presented and compared to previous literature values, with new features indicated where appropriate. With the implied constraint of proper sample handling, micro-Raman spectroscopy is a useful technique for the ready identification of uranium fluorides, oxyfluorides, and oxides.
