Advances in Raman Instrumentation and Sampling Techniques

  • John R. Ferraro


In 1928, when Sir Chandrasekhara Raman discovered the phenomenon which bears his name, the instrumentation was very crude. Raman used sunlight as the source, a telescope as the collector, and his eyes were the detector. It was very remarkable that such a small phenomenon as the Raman effect was detected with such primitive instrumentation.
