Utilization of Optical Fibers in Remote Inelastic Light Scattering Probes

  • Robert E. Benner
  • Richard K. Chang


Preliminary Raman scattering data have been obtained to determine the feasibility of using optical fibers to transmit laser light to a remote location and to return inelastically scattered light to a central spectrometer. To improve signal-to-noise ratios, both a spherical mirror sampling cell and a resonant prism arrangement have been investigated.
