Example text

The result of the sample absorbing radiation is a spectrum in the time domain called an interferogram. Fourier transformation (FT) converts this very complex signal to the frequency domain. Combined FTIR and Raman spectrometers based on the Michelson interferometer are commercially available. Depending on the spectral regions of interest required, it can be operated with a single calcium fluoride (CaF 2 ) beam splitter or a combination of materials with an automatic changer. Spectrometric Instruments 21 As with IR, both dispersive and FT–Raman instruments exist.

After becoming excited, the electrons need to relax back down to the ground state. This emitted radiation, which is slightly lower in energy than the absorbed radiation, is luminescence. There are many types of luminescence: • Photoluminescence Fluorescence Phosphorescence • Radioluminescence • Bioluminescence • Chemiluminescence. The most important of these analytically are the photoluminescence modes of fluorescence and phosphorescence. Fluorescence occurs when UV radiation provides the energy needed to excite electrons in the molecule to the excited singlet state and subsequently, after some radiationless decay, emit photons almost instantaneously (∼10Ϫ9 s) in order to return to the ground state.

It results from the molecule changing its molecular vibrational motions and is a very weak signal. The energy difference between the incident light and the Raman scattered light is equal to the energy involved in getting the molecule to vibrate. This energy difference is called the Raman shift. These shifts are small and are known as Stokes and anti-Stokes shifts, which correspond to shifts to lower and higher frequencies respectively. Several different Raman shifted signals will often be observed, each being associated with different vibrational or rotational motions of molecules in the sample.
