Raman Microscopy

Developments and Applications

One of the first books devoted entirely to the subject of Raman microscopy, this volume addresses issues of great interest to engineers working in Raman-microscope development and researchers concerned with areas ofapplication for this science. The book is written by several world recognized experts, who summarize the Raman effect before discussing the hardware and software involved in todays instruments. This format provides an excellent introduction to this up-and-coming discipline. All important applications, including those in materials science and earth science are covered in depth.

Audience
Spectroscopists, microscopists, materials scientists, analytical scientists

Reviews

  • "This book will be useful to a braod range of practising analysts and spectroscopists, who will find the literature up-to-date and extremely useful...This recommends the book to potential new practitioners, who may then best assess the evaluation of the technique for their own applications...this book does an excellent task in presenting Raman spectroscopy to a multifaceted scientific audience. The many examples cited will interest workers in a wide range of fields, from solid-state physics...to biological scientists (studies of single cells). This book is highly recommended for purchase and will quickly become a classic of its type."
    --H.G.M. Edwards in MEASUREMENT SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
