Raman- and infrared spectroscopy consists of generating excited energy states in the test material by inelastic scattering of irradiated light. The resulting molecular vibrations are recorded and serve, for example, for the identification or quantitative determination of the contained substances, or for the structural determination of unknown materials.
- Non-contact, non-destructive measurement
- Backscattering, access from only one side necessary
- Analysis of biological, chemical and pharmaceutical samples
- Specific fingerprints of solid, liquid and gaseous substances
