Photoluminescence Spectroscopy Using a Raman Spectrometer

December 1, 2016

Photoluminescence can provide information about the composition and solid-state structure of a material. The high spectral resolution of a Raman spectrometer can be useful in performing photoluminescence spectroscopy of solid-state materials, particularly when the emission spectra consist of narrow bands or even lines. Having the capability to perform photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopies simultaneously with the same instrument is advantageous, especially when studying two-dimensional (2D) crystals. When used to perform photoluminescence spectroscopy, the Raman spectrometer becomes two instruments in one.
