Results are presented of a comparative evaluation of a holographic sopernotch filter (HSNF) and a holographic notch filter (HNF) as a Rayleigh line rejection filter for Raman spectroscopy. The filter permits acquisition of both Stokes and anti-Stokes spectra down to ±200 cm−1 shift from excitation simultaneously, without filter angle adjustment. With slight angle adjustment, spectra can be recorded as close as 41 cm−1 from the excitation line. Performance of the HSNF is evaluated by measuring the low-frequency Raman spectra of Tb2(MoO4)3, water, and naphthalene.
