Liquid Core Optical Fibers in Raman Spectroscopy

Volume 35, Number 4 (Aug. 1981) Page 439-442

Ross, Howard B.; McClain, William M.

Raman spectra of samples contained in hollow quartz fibers are compared quantitatively to conventional Raman spectra using identical laser, spectrometer, detector, and scan speed. We find the fiber signal to be enhanced by a factor of 250/m of fiber, in good agreement with calculations based on geometrical optics. A fiber spectrum of 2 mol% trans-stilbene in benzene is good enough to allow essentially perfect solvent subtraction.
