Carbon

Carbon nanotube (CNT) and graphene are the most popular materials being studied currently since they carry on so many significant features which are unbelievable to normal materials. By re-designing and decorating the micro-structure, they demonstrate an even greater flexibility to meet human needs. Raman technology is a good tool to collect RBM spectra in CNT and G-band/ D-band in graphene due to the fact that the small Raman peak shift is proof right from the slightly different structure, making it an ideal instrument to characterize the material structure in carbon science.

Application Notes

Carbon black is a form of amorphous carbon. It is mainly used as reinforcement filler in automobile tires and other rubber products, but is also used in pigments, paint, and carbon paper. Raman spectroscopy is a very effective analytical technology to characterize carbon materials. The fast characterization of carbon black material using Raman spectroscopy is discussed here to demonstrate that Raman technology is well suited for carbon black material characterization.

In recent years, Raman Spectroscopy has gained a reputation in market segments that require the rapid identification of unknown compounds, such as the testing of chemicals, measurement of pharmaceutical ingredients and characterization of polymers. 
Read the full application note
Various different allotropes of carbon such as graphite, diamond and amorphous carbon can be analyzed using Raman spectroscopy. Even more advanced allotropes such as carbon nanotubes (carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure) and graphene (crystalline with 2 dimensional properties) can be effectively analyzed using Raman spectroscopy.
