Abstract :

We report a design of a portable confocal Raman spectroscopy module for sample identification and quantification. An economic laser diode (780nm) and a narrow band pass filter (785nm) located at rotational stage were integrated in a modular format. A dichroic short pass mirror (805nm), an OD 5 long pass filter (800nm), and an objective lens are installed to split elastic scattering and Raman scattering photons from the specimen. Utilizing a single mode fiber optic with a collimator and the objective lens, confocal-like signal is captured to reject information from the out-of-focus sections which allows a chemical optical sectioning of the sample. For validation and characterization, we have used glucose solution with several concentration, and two different glucose concentration solutions on a plate glass separated by a covered glass. The feasibility test showed a promising result to quantify the sample, and optical sectioning with proposed confocal Raman spectroscopy.
