Raman spectroscopy is a non-intrusive method for measuring species concentrations, concentration ratios and temperatures of molecules. While Smekal had predicted the Raman effect in 1923 based on theoretical considerations, it was the Indian scientist C.V.Raman who first observed the effect now carrying his name in 1928. Today, after only 60 years, the development of measuring methods and suitable systems based on the Raman effect has resulted in a wide selection of measuring systems being available for various applications of Raman spectroscopy. The main reasons for this rapid development are the tremendous advancements in laser technology and electronics.
