Polarization Probe

The polarization probe has two polarization channels which enable polarization Raman spectra to be acquired. Polarization Raman uses polarized laser excitation and polarization filters in each of two collection fibers with the polarization filter in one fiber oriented parallel to the polarized excitation laser and the polarization filter in the other fiber oriented perpendicular to the polarized excitation laser. The resulting spectral information gives an insight into molecular orientation and vibrational symmetry. It is used to understand the orientation of molecules in organized environments such as crystal lattices.
