Raman Detection of a Single Airborne Aerosol Particles of Isovanillin
May 24, 2017
Raman spectroscopy of trapped single aerosol particles has been reported previously. However, detection of single aerosol particles via Raman spectroscopy in a flowing system has not been yet reported. In this paper, we describe the first detection of single 3 um flowing airborne aerosol particles flowing through a Raman system, which is a simplified version of the previously reported system with a 532-nm, 10W cw double-pass laser, 532-nm isolator, and double-sided collection optics. The current system has single-pass laser, no 532-nm isolator, and single-sided collection optics. Previous Raman detection of single aerosol particles has been made using trapped particles.
