Recent Developments in High Resolution Raman Spectroscopy of Gases

Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 10)

Abstract

Several recently developed experimental methods for obtaining Raman spectra of gases with laser excitation are reviewed. These developments are placed in the context of the accomplishments achieved with the prelaser technique which employed mercury arc lamps as the primary light source. An apparatus is described with which the rotational and rotation-vibrational Raman spectra of a number of heavy polyatomic molecules have been observed with a practical limit of resolution of approximately 0.07cm −1. The use of the Fabry-Perot interferometer in high resolution Raman studies of gases is briefly discussed.
