General Introduction

  • L. A. Woodward

Abstract

The object of this chapter is to provide the nonspecialist reader with a general account of the nature and theory of the Raman effect and to indicate the types of application in which it has been found to be of value. Owing to considerations of space, the treatment must necessarily be rather superficial in character, but it is hoped that this introduction may provide a broad background against which the subsequent more specialized chapters may be read. References to these will be made at suitable points.
