The geometry of adjacent optical fiber sensors to transport the laser beam and Raman signal in Raman spectrometry is simulated and optimized. The theory of the adjacent optical fiber sensors is developed using various models and the interaction depth is calculated. The efficiency vs the interaxes distance, the diameters of the optical fibers, and the angle between the two optical fibers are also given.
