Raman Spectroscopy; the Diagnostic Tool

For a new field of knowledge to be explored, a diagnostic investigative tool is an essential prerequisite. With its ability to explore molecular behaviour, and its sensitivity to perturbation effects on such behaviour, Raman spectroscopy represents; if not the, then definitely, one of the most important diagnostic tools to explore nanomaterial. Perturbation effects resulting from thermal, electric, magnetic, and mechanical, fields as well as chemical potentials affecting a nanomaterial system clearly impact its Raman activity providing crucial information to understand the system's behaviour and enabling the development of nanotechnology.
