Abstract

During the past ten years inelastic light scattering spectroscopy has developed into one of the most powerful and most widely used optical techniques for the study of the properties of the low frequency elementary excitations of solids. This has been, to some extent, a consequence of the availability of lasers as excitation sources and of improved spectrometers and associated electronics for recording weak light scattering spectra. Scattering by elementary excitations has been observed in opaque solids, including metals and narrow gap semiconductors, as well as in transparent crystals. Very recently, with the help of computerized spectra recording techniques it has become possible to observe extremely weak scattering intensities.
