THE thermal agitation of the atoms in solids results, as was shown by Raman (NATURE, Jan. 12, 1922, and Jan. 6, 1923), in a noticeable blue opalescence in the interior of such transparent crystals as quartz or ice when they are traversed by a strong beam of sunlight. In his address on the discovery of a new type of secondary radiation (Indian Journal of Physics, Mar. 31, 1928) Raman described observations showing that monochromatic light scattered in this manner by crystals is accompanied by… 

Raman spectra of the second order in crystals

A detailed study has been made of the Raman effect in quartz using the λ2536.5 mercury radiation as exciter. The spectrum consists of 43 Raman lines, nearly half of them have been recorded for the

Low frequency Raman lines in organic crystals

SummaryThe Raman spectra of the low frequency region between 20 and 130 cm.−1 have been recorded for fourteen organic solids and the influence of rise of temperature upto the melting point on these

Raman spectra of the second order in crystals

SummaryThe Raman spectrum of aragonite crystal has been photographed using λ2536·5 excitation. 25 Frequency shifts have been recorded as compared to 17 observed previously. They are distributed as

Edge phonons in black phosphorus

TLDR
Polarized Raman results show the appearance of new modes at the edges of the sample, and their spectra depend on the atomic structure of the edges, and theoretical simulations confirm that the new modes are due to edge phonon states that are forbidden in the bulk, and originated from the lattice termination rearrangements.

Polarized Raman spectroscopy for studying two-dimensional materials

TLDR
This review explains the basics of polarized Raman spectroscopy, especially in the context of 2DMs research, and survey some of the most important applications of polarization in isotropic and anisotropic 2D Ms studies.
