Raman Spectroscopies: Techniques and Applications

This thematics series is devoted to new techniques and novel instrumentation in Raman spectroscopies and their application across a broad range of subjects, from materials science to biology and biomedicine.
The goal is to provide an overview of the state-of-the art and to highlight recent developments in the field of Raman spectroscopic techniques, which are making significant impact as characterization tools and are enhancing our understanding of structural aspects, both in time and space resolutions, across a wide range of disciplines and applications.​​​​​​​
