Abstract

A cylindrical sample cell is adapted to the problem of increasing the scattered-light signal from an optically thin liquid sample. The ends of the cylinder are coated with specularly reflecting aluminum to increase the signal by reflecting the stimulating light beam through the medium multiple times. The circumference of the cylinder is similarly coated to increase the fraction of the emitted light that is collected and sent into the slit of a spectrometer. Such a cell can greatly increase the signal measured by an analysis system without any modifications to the system.
