Understanding the surface chemistry of materials, examining surface modification, material failure processes, and designing new technologies all require surface analysis technology. Raman spectroscopy is a tool for studying molecular bonding in materials that is extremely sensitive to structural changes. Alfa Chemistry offers a broad range of Raman analysis services to customers for testing and analyzing various surface materials.
A beam of photons from a pulsed laser (typically with a wavelength in the visible light region) hits the surface in Raman spectroscopy. The photons are scattered by the molecules in the sample, and the energy released corresponds to the vibration level of the scattering molecules. A spectrometer analyzes the scattered photons to produce a spectrum that shows energy loss, which is typical of the molecules that interact with the photon.

Raman spectroscopy can determine chemical structures and identify molecules by using vibrational spectroscopy. Raman analysis offers a higher spatial resolution than FTIR and can study objects as tiny as 1 m.
The ideal use of Raman is as follows:
The advantages of Raman include:
Raman spectroscopy is a widely used qualitative analysis tool in surface research. It can determine surface bonding, conformation, and orientation, as well as provide information about the surface's functional groups or structure. In the field of surface research, Raman spectroscopy is one of the most promising and commonly utilized techniques.
