Raman Spectroscopy

Raman spectroscopy is based on the phenomenon of inelastic scattering of light, first observed by C.V. Raman in  1928. It involves illuminating a sample with intense monochromatic laser light and analyzing the resulting Raman (inelastically) scattered photons. Such photons carry information about the identity of the material and its physical and chemical state. In Raman spectroscopy, the difference between the wavelengths of the incident and scattered radiation is measured.

Raman spectroscopy is used in a wide variety of research fields, with in applications in physics, chemistry, biology, pharmacology geology, forensics, materials science, etc.

Our Renishaw inVia Reflex Raman spectrometer allows specialized applications like: Raman imaging, polarized Raman, resonant Raman, low-frequency Raman, photo-luminescence, simultaneous Raman/AFM imaging.
