Detection limits of about 1 g/m2 are demonstrated for the Raman determination of two organic materials, polydimethylsiloxane and dimethyl methylphosphonate, on an aluminum surface. A fiber-optic-based system is used. A large sample area is scanned to overcome heterogeneity
in sample coverage. Measurements are made without use of an internal standard. Results are reported for both a Hadamard transform technique with argon-ion laser excitation and a conventional spectrometer with diode laser excitation.
