Light Scattering in Solids IX

  • Manuel Cardona
  • Roberto Merlin
Part of the Topics in Applied Physics book series (TAP, volume 108)


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.
