We have developed a class of aperture coding schemes for Remote
Raman Spectrometers (RRS) that remove the traditional trade-off
between throughput and spectral resolution. As a result, the size
of the remote interrogation region can be driven by operational,
rather than optical considerations. We present theoretical
arguments on the performance of these codes and present data from
where we have utilized these codes in other spectroscopy efforts.© (2005) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
