Paper Abstract

Current state-of-the-art long-length fiber-optic remote Raman probes are limited to about 100 m in length for weak scatterers. Not only is this due to probe design, but also to the wavelengths and hardware chosen. By using the portability and versatility of diode lasers and their wavelength match to the transmission windows of telecommunication fiber-optics, previously designed systems may now be extended to at least a factor of five over previously designed systems. Such a system is described, along with a review of currently available Raman probe designs.
