Fluorescence interference has been a major impediment to obtaining Raman spectra from many samples illuminated by laser at visible wavelengths. Fourier-transform (FT) Raman spectroscopy in the near-infrared eliminates the problem of fluorescence background, and automated systems designed to apply this advantage in industrial environments make it possible to accurately and conveniently analyze almost any material. FT-Raman data also complements information acquired via FT-IR absorption analysis. Taken on a system combining FT-Raman and IR capabilities, spectra of samples that include alcohols, polymers and amino acids demonstrate the practical utility of these techniques for industrial and research applications. In addition, such instrumentation offers data acquisition speed comparable to conventional Raman analysis, as well as throughput and multiplex advantages. Samples may also be illuminated at higher power in the infrared without rotation to prevent thermal damage.
