Applications of Raman spectroscopy in mineralogy and geochemistry (in Raman spectroscopy in earth and planetary sciences, Jill D. Pasteris (editor) and Olivier Beyssac (editor))
Elements (April 2020) 16 (2): 99-104


The application of Raman spectroscopy for the identification and characterization of minerals and related materials has increased appreciably during recent years. Raman spectroscopy has proven to be a most valuable and versatile analytical tool. Successful applications cover virtually all the mineralogical sub-disciplines, and have become more numerous in geochemistry. We present a general summary of present applications, illustrated by selected examples. In addition, we briefly point out several aspects of spectral acquisition, data reduction, and interpretation of Raman results that are important for the application of Raman spectroscopy as a reliable analytical tool.
