Light Scattering in Solids IX

  • Manuel Cardona
  • Roberto Merlin


We briefly review the contents of this as well as previous volumes of the series Light Scattering in Solids, and present a chronological account of the International Conference on Raman spectroscopy (ICORS).

A bibliometric study of early publications on the Raman effect is also presented together with a succint historical outline of the discovery of the effect and information recently made available about the Nobel Prize awarded to Sir Chandrasekhar Venkata Raman in 1930.
