Provides spatially resolved information on structure, bonding, constituents, and electronic structure of a wide variety of functional and structural materials.

Examples of applications of Raman microscopy include the differentiation of polymorphs and chemical mapping in the pharmaceutical industry, detection and monitoring of stress in silicon based microelectronics, and identification of high temperature and pressure treated diamonds.
