Raman Spectroscopy Applications
Raman spectroscopy exploits the inelastic scattering of photons off of covalently bonded molecules to identify functional groups, crystallinity, and stresses and strains. It is a widely used spectroscopy technique for both quantitative and qualitative molecular analysis, with applications ranging from semiconductor manufacturing to airport security screening. Because of the extensive range of applications for Raman spectroscopy, it might be difficult to determine which spectrometer is best suited for any given application. This application note will provide an overview of three common applications, biomedical diagnostics, silicon wafer stress monitoring, and incoming material verification, along with suggestions for a preferred spectrometer for each application.
