Raman Spectroscopy News and Research

RSS
In Raman spectroscopy, a laser is used to irradiate a sample. Almost all of the light is scattered in an elastic manner, meaning no change in energy occurs. However, a small percentage of light is scattered in an inelastic manner, known as Raman scattering. This process was first observed by Indian scientist Sir Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman in 1928.
