The Technique of Raman Spectroscopy: A State-of-the-Art Comparison to Infrared

Volume 25, Number 4 (Aug. 1971) Page 430-439

Sloane, Howard J.

This paper in a tabulated summary format discusses the state-of-the-art of Raman spectroscopy for commercially available instrumentation. A comparison to infrared is made in terms of (I) instrumentation, (II) sample handling, and (III) applications. Although the two techniques yield similar and often complementary information, they are quite different from the point of view of instrumentation and sampling procedures. This leads to various advantages and disadvantages or limitations for each. These are discussed as well as the future outlook.
