An excimer pumped dye laser Raman/fluorescence spectrometer is described and is evaluated for spectroscopic investigations of various base polymers and cured paints. The system is designed to achieve high signal-to-noise ratio for minimum detection time and to be adapted for both laboratory analyses and remote sensing applications. Some preliminary laboratory measurements are evaluated for the range of application in analytical studies and remote sensing.
