Fundamentals of Raman Spectroscopy and Instrumentation
In this webinar, we will discuss the fundamentals of Raman scattering and how it has evolved into a modern spectroscopic technique. We will provide a brief overview of Raman scattering from booth a classical and quantum mechanical perspective, discuss how Raman scattering is used in spectroscopy, and how modern lasers and spectrometers have enabled the creation of portable and handheld Raman spectrometers. The second half will provide an overview of Raman instrumentation and many common applications of Raman spectroscopy. Applications to be covered include material identification & quantification, forensics analysis, art & archaeology, and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS).
