This is a spectroscopic technique that uses monochromatic light and inelastic scattering to observe vibrational and rotational modes in a sample. A laser interacts with excitations in a system, which result in energy shifts, which are then used to give information about the vibrational modes.
Results are usually generated in a spectral format and the Renishaw system can also provide imaging and mapping capabilities. Raman can be used for a wide variety of samples including: inorganics, organics and biological samples, in general the only sample types not suitable are mainly metals and their alloys.
