Multi-Mode vs Single-Mode Lasers for Raman Spectroscopy

Here at RPMC we are excited to announce the release of the first installment in our new application note series titled “Multi-Mode vs Single-Mode Lasers for Raman Spectroscopy.”  The purpose of these application notes is to provide you with a quick reference on a variety of topics that we think will help you decide which laser is the best for your particular application.

Raman spectroscopy, which is one of the fastest growing applications in laser spectroscopy,  is a non-contact non-destructive wave of identifying and analyzing the molecular structure of a wide variety of different samples.  This diversity in samples leads itself to a diversity in sampling methodology, making it difficult to know which laser is the best for your particular application.  In this application note, we take a look at the specific question of whether or not to use a single-spatial-mode or multi-spatial-mode, covering topics such as sample color, uniformity, and crystallinity.
