Routine FT-Raman spectroscopy with modified standard FT-IR instrument

  • Bernhard Schrader
  • Arno Simon


A commercial FT-IR spectrometer (BRUKER IFS 66) was combined with a Raman module, having an Nd∶YAG laser as source, a sample compartment, a filter for elimination of the exciting line from the spectrum and a detector. The interferometer and computer of the IFS 66 was used to record Raman spectra of small amounts of liquids and solids using a spherical sapphire sample cell.
