Resonance Enhancement of Raman Spectroscopy: Friend or Foe?
The presence of electronic transitions in the visible part of the spectrum can provide enormous enhancement of the Raman signals, if these electronic states are not luminescent. In some cases, the signals can increase by as much as six orders of magnitude. How much of an enhancement is possible depends on several factors, such as the width of the excited state, the proximity of the laser to that state, and the enhancement mechanism. MORE »

Polymorph Identification and Analysis Using Ultralow-Frequency Raman Spectroscopy
Ultralow-frequency Raman spectroscopy has commonly been cited as an effective technique for polymorph identification because it accesses the lattice vibrations related to the physical structure of the molecule. However, these frequencies have been difficult and expensive to access with traditional Raman spectrometer systems. Recent advances in volume holographic grating (VHG) filter technology enable rapid acquisition of high-quality ultralow-frequency Raman spectra in the 5-200 cm-1 region using a compact filter system and single-stage spectrograph, greatly simplifying and reducing the cost of utilizing this technique. We report results using this system with both visible and near infrared (NIR) excitation wavelengths to analyze multiple forms of the polymorphic active pharmaceutical ingredient carbamazepine.
