The Raman Effect in X-ray Scattering

  title={The Raman Effect in X-ray Scattering},
  author={Kariamanikkam Srinivasa Krishnan},
THAT a quantum of radiation can be absorbed in part by an atomic system, and the remaining part scattered by it giving rise to a radiation of increased wave-length, has been demonstrated by recent work on the scattering of light in material media. In his address on “A New Radiation” (Ind. Jour. Phys., vol. 2, p. 398, Mar. 31, 1928) Raman pointed out that precisely similar effects should also be observable in the case of X-ray scattering. In other words, in addition to the Compton type, we…

X-Ray Raman Scattering. Experiment. I

X-ray Raman scattering of Cu K α radiation by solids of light elements has been studied. The scatterers were polycrystalline lithium, beryllium, boron and carbon. At the low-angle scattering it was

Raman effect in the x-ray region

This paper presents a brief review of x-ray Raman scattering and some of our calculations on Raman scattered line shapes from light elements. We summarise the history of the Raman process in the

X-Ray Raman Scattering. II. Experiment with Cr Kα Radiation

X-ray Raman scattering by solids of light elements, lithium, beryllium, boron and carbon, was studied using Cr K α radiation. Intensities of X-rays scattered at angles of 30°, 60°, 90°, 120° and 160°


X-ray Raman scattering from core electrons of low Z materials provides an alternative to soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy in cases where (i) exotic final states will be probed, (ii) the penetrating

A compact point focusing spatial filter for x-ray fluorescence and inelastic x-ray scattering studies

Appropriately selected absorbers combined with spatial filters are frequently used as x-ray low-pass filters in inelastic x-ray scattering studies and x-ray fluorescence spectroscopies. We describe

X-ray Raman Scattering: A Hard X-ray Probe of Complex Organic Systems.

This paper provides a review of the characterization of organic systems via X-ray Raman scattering (XRS) and a step-by-step guidance for its application. We present the fundamentals of XRS required
