Raman microscope


Raman spectroscopy  is based on inelastic light scattering of a monochromatic electromagnetic radiation and provides important information on vibrational, rotational, and other low-frequency modes which couple to the electronic degrees of freedom. Raman spectroscopy is commonly used in solid-state physics, materials science and chemistry to provide a structural fingerprint by which molecules and lattice structures can be identified. Raman spectroscopy is used to characterize materials, and find the crystallographic orientation of a sample. When coupled to a microscope, Raman spectroscopy can be performed in spatial-resolved mode.
