Raman spectroscopy, with visible laser (514 and 633 nm) and near infrared (785 and 1064 nm) excitation, has been used to obtain high quality spectra of phenanthrene, chrysene, and tetracene. Samples with dimensions from a minimum size of 10 microm have been analyzed utilizing a Raman microprobe fitted with a charge-coupled device (CCD) array detector and a FT-Raman instrument. Fluorescence is observed for samples using visible 514, 633 and near infrared 785 nm excitation but most of the samples can be measured with a near infrared 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser.
