Abstract

Due to the advent of the laser as a source of light, Raman spectroscopy has become an important tool complementary to infrared spectroscopy for the study, analysis, and identification of materials (1,2). Daudon et al. successfully applied the Raman micro-probe technique to the analysis of urinary calculi (3).
