Raman Spectroscopy

Raman Applications
Other Applications

In addition to the applications outlined in the previous sections, Raman can be applied to:

  1. Art & Archeology (determination of real and fake objects, restorations, pigment identification, etc.)
  2. Chemical Education (for qualitative and quantitation courses)
  3. Gemology (determination of real and fake materials, origin determination, restoration, etc.)
  4. Geology (inclusion analysis, chemical and mineral identification)
  5. Treasury Applications (identification of inks, pigments, and paper)
  6. Food Sciences (identification and quantitation of unsaturation, fat content, etc.)
  7. SERS (surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy) for trace detection
  8. Environmental determination of components from fraction of a percent to percent levels
  9. Glass and Porcelain (composition, glasses, pigments, etc.)

The chemical specificity of the technique, the non-contact and non-destructive nature of the measurement, the ease of sampling, and the ability to measure both organic and inorganic chemistries (where a chemical bond is present) make Raman a powerful chemical analytical technique.
