Interested in Raman spectroscopy but don’t know where to begin? This free short course is aimed at you. These lessons give a brief overview of Raman scattering, cover practical considerations for making measurements (special focus on spectrometers and detectors), explore some of its many variants and look at some current applications. No previous experience is required.
The lessons cover a short introduction to Raman spectroscopy, its fundamental limitations, typical experimental setups, common applications and different measurement modalities. We also contrast Raman spectroscopy to its more popular vibrational cousin, infrared absorption.
