critical text material!

This comprehensive reference/text covers updated principles of Raman theory, analysis, instrumentation, and measurement—specifying up-to-the-minute benefits of Raman spectroscopy in a variety of industrial and academic fields, and how to cultivate growth in new disciplines.

Contains case studies that illustrate current techniques in data extraction and analysis!

Highlighting methods of Raman analysis in applications that are fueling commercial development, the Handbook of Raman Spectroscopy

  • introduces important instrumental measurement parameters 
  • reviews automated calibration in the industrial environment 
  • examines the use of Raman spectroscopy in polymer films and fibers 
  • presents innovations in hard-disk analysis, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, and catalysis
  • demonstrates potential of Raman spectroscopy for studies in gemmology, archaeology, and environmental and forensic sciences
  • discusses spectral identification and management of standard spectral databases for pigments 
  • reveals insights into biodynamics and process control 
  • and more!

Containing over 2700 literature references, the Handbook of Raman Spectroscopy is an essential guide for general and Raman spectroscopists; organic, inorganic, analytical, polymer, material, and environmental chemists and biochemists; process and chemical engineers; physicists; instrument design specialists; biomedical and biotechnological researchers; forensic scientists; pharmacologists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
