ApplicationRaman Spectroscopy: Carbon Hydride Detection and Identification
Optical detection of Carbon Hydrides via Absorption Spectroscopy is very difficult due to weak absorption of the Carbon Hydride molecules. Furthermore, it is very difficult to distinguish between different types of Carbon Hydrides via Absorption Spectroscopy. A more suitable detation method is Raman Spectroscopy.
The graphic shows a Raman Spectrum of Acetone and Ethanol. Different types of Carbon Hydrides can be directly identfied by the value of the Raman shirt of the signal. Optical detection is very powerful since the measurement can be performed over distances without the need for any direct contact with the Carbon Hydrides. For more information, please contact us.
