Raman or Fluorescence Spectra? About the Use of FT-Raman Techniques on Inorganic Compounds

Volume 48, Number 8 (Aug. 1994) Page 1028-1029

Varetti, Eduardo L.; Baran, Enrique J.

The use of interferometric instruments and excitation of samples with near-infrared light to obtain Raman spectra has established itself as a very useful technique. The main advantage, besides the relative simplicity of this approach, is the absence of the intense fluorescence background very often encountered with dispersive instruments when one is using visible light for excitation, mainly for organic samples.
