Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic probe based on a hollow optical fiber was developed for highly-sensitive remote-Raman measurements of particles in solution. A lens mounted at the distal end of the fiber was optimally designed to suppress the spherical aberration and maximize the numerical aperture by the ray-optics method, and fabricated by polishing a SrTiO3 ball of 1 mm diameter. Polystyrene particles of 60 μm diameter dispersed in NaCl aqueous solution were three-dimensionally trapped by the prototype probe. The Raman spectrum of the polystyrene particle was clearly observed when the particle was optically trapped at the beam focus.
