Raman spectroscopy is the inelastic scattering of light by matter. Being highly sensitive to the physical and chemical properties of materials, as well as to environmental effects that change these properties, Raman spectroscopy is now evolving into one of the most important tools for nanoscience and nanotechnology. In contrast to usual microscopyrelated techniques, the advantages of using light for nanoscience relate to both experimental and fundamental aspects.
