Raman spectroscopy is used in industrial laboratories for the characterization of semi-conductors, polymers and diamond thin films. This volume is an introduction to this field, presenting firstly, the basic theory, followed by a discussion of the instrumentation and the experimental and special techniques used in this methodology. Following this is a survey of the applications of Raman specstroscopy in structural chemistry, biochemistry, biology, medicine, solid state chemistry, and industry.
