Molecular imaging by Raman microscopy

Authors


Abstract

Research News: Raman microscopy combines the ability to indentify molecular species in a sample and to determine the location of these species within the sample. An example of the application of the technique is shown in the figure where a plasma-deposited diamond film is imaged, the lighter areas indicating the presence of crystalline diamond. The developement of the technique and some of its applications are outlined.
