Exercises Raman Spectroscopy and Sample Preparation for Molecular SpectroscopyRaman Spectroscopy and Sample Preparation for Molecular Spectroscopy
1) Describe the theoretical basis for Raman spectroscopy. Draw a simple spectrum and indicate the Stokes, Anti-Stokes, and Rayleigh signals.
2) Why has Raman spectroscopy only more recently become practical to perform in the lab compared to when it was originally discovered? What other type of molecular spectroscopy are Raman spectra similar to? What are some advantages of Raman over other molecular spectroscopies?
3) Find an interesting application of Raman from an online resource and summarize it here. Provide the reference.
4) List some common types of sample preparation for molecular spectroscopy.
