[Fran Adar; James E Griffiths; Jeremy M Lerner; Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation . Raman spectroscopy is a molecular spectroscopic technique that utilizes the interaction of light with matter to gain insight into a material's make up or characteristics, like FTIR. The information provided by Raman spectroscopy results from a light scattering process, whereas IR spectroscopy . The discovery of inelastic light scattering on molecular samples was recognised by the award of the Nobel Prize in to C.V. Raman, after whom the spectroscopy based on inelastic light scattering is conventionally named Raman spectroscopy. Raman scattering Raman scattering is an inelastic counterpart effect, which takes its name from Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman—the scientist who pioneered experimental work on the subject .

Raman scattering and Fluorescence emission are two competing phenomena, which have similar origins. Generally, a laser photon bounces off a molecule and looses a certain amount of energy that allows the molecule to vibrate (Stokes process). The scattered photon is therefore less energetic and the associated light . Introduction to Raman Spectroscopy Raman scattering is the inelastic scattering of light and is a result of molecular vibrations. The light interacts with the molecule and distorts the electronic cloud . Diane S. Knight and William B.

Abstract Raman scattering was first observed in and was used to investigate the vibrational states of many molecules in the s. Initially, spectroscopic methods based on the phenomenon . Raman spectroscopy offers several advantages for microscopic analysis. Since it is a light scattering technique, specimens do not need to be fixed or sectioned. Raman spectra can be collected from a very small volume (Raman . In Raman spectroscopy we are observing the scattering process of photons upon interrogation with a monochromatic (single wavelength) laser and unlike in IR spectroscopy, the photons are not . 5.
