The Applied Spectral Knowledge (ASK) Podcast is our newest forum for tips and insights on spectral sensing challenges. Listen in as Ocean Insight experts cover topics ranging from common measurement errors to how to use Raman effectively.
Join Ocean Lab Services Manager Dr. Yvette Mattley as she discusses the Ins and Outs of Raman Spectroscopy with Ocean Insight scientists Drs. Amy Bauer and Anne-Marie Dowgiallo. Learn more about Raman and its origins (1:50), how to choose the best laser excitation wavelength (9:37) and other setup tips (16:06), and why Raman has promise in detecting bacteria and viruses (30:53).
Enjoy other episodes of the ASK podcast.
Raman spectroscopy uses scattering of laser light to probe molecular structure. Of every million photons scattered, a single photon will interact with the vibrational states of a sample molecule and emit light of a different wavelength.
