The characterization of polymers under high pressure has become increasingly important because of the expanded number of applications in which polymers are being used. Raman spectroscopy is a unique tool for studying materials in a diamond-anvil cell under pressure because good signal-to-noise spectra can be recorded on minute amounts of material.
