Conference paper


Recent introduction of laser sources has brought about renewed interest in Raman spectroscopy to study molecular vibrations. New sampling techniques have been developed, and existing methods of dispersing and detecting Raman spectra have either been improved or replaced by newly developed methods. As a result, Raman spectroscopy is expected to rival in importance the other commonly used form of vibrational spectroscopy, infrared absorption. This paper will discuss the unique capabilities of Raman spectroscopy and present results from research on the Raman scattering of polymers.
