A system for Raman spectroscopy involving synergistic interaction between a computer and spectrometer is described which permits complete point by point flexibility in scanning the spectrum. The interface between the computer and the spectrometer and its operation is described together with the basic characteristics of the computer software to operate it. It is shown that significant improvement can be made in spectrum quality and/or run time when statistical considerations are used to program the operation of the system.
