Abstract

Raman backscattering facilitates measurements in systems with limited optical access. In such experiments, spatial filtering is of paramount importance to collect signals only from a well-defined probe volume. In the present work, a straightforward numerical approach is presented to estimate the performance of a spatial filter in a given application. A systematic investigation is carried out for an experimental system using a metallic mirror with a hole acting as a spatial filter. In this configuration, a small hole results in poor spatial resolution but high signal intensity whereas a large hole yields good spatial resolution but low signal. It is shown that the approach allows the optimal hole diameter to be determined that offers a compromise between spatial resolution and signal intensity. Spatially filtered Raman backscattering measurements in a fed-batch stirred tank reactor are presented, where the conversion of citric acid is monitored.
