Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A micro-Raman spectrometer is a very useful device to identify and characterize small crystals in natural and synthetic samples. Raman spectra are taken also at high pressure using mainly a diamond anvil cell. However, it should be careful to select diamond in order to avoid fluorescence. This article describes some technical information and several examples of Raman spectroscopy.
