Dataset for Ultra-low background Raman sensing using a negative-curvature fibre and no distal optics

Collected data for the results presented in "Ultra-low background Raman sensing using a negative-curvature fibre and no distal optics" demonstrating the use of a single hollow core negative curvature fibre for Raman and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy sensing. This new optical fibre shows a 1000x background reduction compared to conventional fibres while maintaining the same collection efficiency. The dataset includes Raman and SERS spectra from different samples and attenuation data for a range of wavelengths for the negative curvature fibre.

Data collection method:

The data (txt files) were collected using an Avantes SensLine Hero spectrometer and the setup described in the associated paper. The methodology used to obtain the data is also described in the paper.

Technical details and requirements:

MATLAB was used to plot the acquired data, but is not needed to open the data files.

Additional information:

Each subfolder contains the relevant data for each of the figures in the paper; each column of the complete data table for the figure has been saved as a separate text file.
