Micro Raman Spectrometer


Raman spectroscopy is a light scattering technique and can be thought of in its simplest form as a process where a photon of light interacts with a sample to produce scattered radiation of different wavelengths. Raman scattered light is frequency-shifted with respect to the excitation frequency, but the magnitude of the shift is independent of the excitation frequency. This “Raman shift” is therefore an intrinsic property of the sample.
