This new edition of the successful text, ‘Modern Raman spectroscopy’, presents the information necessary to enable new users to understand and apply the technique correctly. This includes descriptions of the many pitfalls that can be encountered. In addition, it will aid those with a more sustained interest to gain sufficient knowledge and understanding to make full use of the high information content that Raman scattering presents. The early chapters provide enough basic theory to make a practical interpretation of Raman spectra. The theory is dealt with in a little more depth in later chapters where the approach is to describe the main equations used, but concentrating on their meaning and relevance rather than a full mathematical treatment. The book provides a firm grounding, with appropriate references, from which to approach more in-depth studies of specific aspects of Raman spectroscopy.
New to this edition:
- Updates to the instrumentation section including spatially offset Raman scattering (SORS) and transmission Raman scattering.
- SERS chapter will present an updated description of the concept and modern examples and Tip enhanced Raman scattering(TERS) will be added
- The Applications chapter will feature extensive updates, particularly for the pharmaceutical, forensic and biological applications
- The more advanced techniques will feature a discussion on the imaging and mapping of biological samples.
