Narrow gated Raman spectroscopy is used to detect Raman signals of explosives, which are usually screened by their intrinsic or background luminescence. It was found that the Raman/luminescence ratio is improved by 2-10 times with gate width of 500 ps compared to the 10 ns gate. It enables in certain cases to combine the luminescence suppression by gating with higher identification ability of Raman signals achievable with green excitation.
