Raman spectroscopy gives information about rotational and vibrational energy levels of a molecule, like IR spectroscopy. The technique has improved, especially during the past two decades, owing to the development of better technology, i.e., laser sources, solid state detectors, photon counting, charge coupled device camera, signal sampling and averaging and noise filtering with computers, ultralow stray light monochromators, etc. For catalysis and adsorption, this spectroscopy is complementary to classical IR transmission because the selection rules are different, but in some cases it is the only spectroscopy able to detect adsorbent vibrations in a wave number range where the support itself is not transparent to IR radiation.
