Adaptability
Yes; users can add new targets in the field and create custom searchable spectral libraries. Most organic chemicals are capable of producing a searchable Raman spectrum, with the exception of materials that fluoresce when exposed to 785 nm light.
Sample Introduction
Liquid; Solid; Vapor/Gas
Sensitivity/Detection Limits
Bulk; mg; g
Known Interferents/Inhibitors
Successful identification of an unknown is dependent on the presence of the corresponding reference spectrum in the library. Analysis of mixtures can produce erroneous search results unless the library contains a reference spectrum of the mixture itself. Fluorescence, either from the unknown, or a component or interferent in the unknown, can produce intense interference. Fluorescence is up to 106 more intense than the Raman effect that produces a searchable spectrum. The technique is sensitive to ambient infrared radiation. Best results are obtained when the sample is shielded from light during acquisition.
