    The 8th edition of the International Congress on the Application of Raman Spectroscopy in Art Archeology (RAA 2015) was held in Wroclaw (Poland) from 1 to 5 September 2015, with three Plenary Lectures, eight Trendsetting Talks, 37 Oral Presentations and 34 Poster Presentations. The number of active participants was 113 delegates from 22 countries among the 250 authors that presented at least one work.

  2. Pressure dependence of the Raman signal intensity in high-pressure gases

    Version of Record online: 28 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/jrs.5062

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    In the present work, a theoretical model is presented that describes the Raman signal intensity as a function of the pressure of the gas medium considering the compressibility factor, the internal field factor, and the instrumental factor. To verify the model, changes in the Raman signal intensities of vibrational bands of nitrogen and oxygen in the pressure range 1–80 atm and carbon dioxide in the pressure range 1–60 atm are investigated

  3. Raman spectroscopy of layered lead tin disulfide (PbSnS2) thin films

    Version of Record online: 21 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/jrs.5064

    We present first the detailed Raman studies of PbSnS2, including the polarization-dependent and temperature-dependent measurements (80–400 K range). The strong effect of the polarization angle and temperature on the Raman spectra was observed. The extracted first-order temperature coefficients are among the largest reported so far for layered materials. Our results might be helpful in understanding the anisotropic optical, thermal and electrical properties of PbSnS2.

  5. Glass-embedded quaternary CdS1−xySexTey nanocrystals: Chemical composition derived from the Raman band intensities

    Quaternary CdS1−xySexTey nanocrystals are obtained in borosilicate glass by diffusion-limited growth. In their micro-Raman spectra CdTe-like, CdSe-like, and CdS-like LO phonon bands are observed providing evidence for a three-mode character of the compositional transformation of their phonon spectra. An attempt is made to quantify the nanocrystal chemical composition based on the corresponding LO phonon band intensity ratios taking into account the effect of polaron constants.
