Micro-Raman Spectroscopy

  • Katsumasa FujitaEmail author


Raman scattering is an inelastic light scattering, with which molecular or lattice vibration is excited by accepting a part of light energy incident to a material. Since the molecule/lattice vibration is determined by the molecular/lattice structure in the material, measuring the energy loss of light (photon) provides the information of the molecule/lattice vibration excited.
