Abstract

The performance of a photoelectric Raman spectrograph depends on the amount of luminant energy transmitted to the photomultiplier. An expression for this energy is found and this leads directly to certain principles to be followed in the design of such an instrument. The optimum sample shape is discussed and various types of sources are compared.
