Time Resolved Raman Spectroscopy for Depth Analysis of Multi-layered Mineral Samples

Time Resolved Raman Spectroscopy (TRRS) can provide subsurface information from multi-layered samples of transparent and translucent evaporative and silicate minerals up to several cm thick. Depth information was obtained using 3-ps pulsed laser excitation at 720 nm and a gated intensified CCD detector with stepwise increasing delay times. Blocks of… (More)
