IN a recent address (Indian Journal of Physics, vol. 2, part 3, p. 387) Prof. C. V. Raman announced the interesting discovery that when monochromatic light is diffused by the molecules of a liquid, the spectrum of the scattered light contains, besides the incident lines, also other new lines of increased wavelength. The Raman effect, as it may be called, is less easily observed in the case of scattering by gases and vapours. Nevertheless, I have succeeded in photographing a satisfactory…

Some Chemical Applications of Gas Phase Linear Raman Spectroscopy

Almost as soon as the Raman effect was discovered for liquids [1] and solids [2], the Raman spectra of several gases were reported [3–5]. Since the number of scattering molecules per unit volume is

Raman effect: History of the discovery

The paper gives a historical account of the discovery of the Raman Effect, starting from Raman's voyage to Europe through the Mediterranean Sea in the summer of 1921 to the observation of modified

Contemporary advances in physics, XVII the scattering of light with change of frequency

Scattering of light is one of the commonest of all phenomena, which does not in the least imply that it is one of the most commonplace. Even its practical importance entitles it to high respect. We

Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman

The year 1988 marks the centennial of the birth of C. V. Raman, the discoverer of the effect that bears his name. During his extraordinarily creative career, which spanned more than six decades, he
