The studies are performed using Raman spectroscopy, which is a non-destructive and non-contact method. Thus, the structural and physical properties of solid, liquid and gaseous samples are examined, without the need for prior preparation of the samples. Raman spectroscopy is widely used in various fields such as physics, chemistry, geology, mineralogy, biology, pharmacy, criminology, and modern materials science – in the study of carbon nanotubes, graphene, diamond-like coatings, polymers, semiconductors, high-temperature superconductors and others.
In addition to the traditional laboratory measurements of polarized Raman spectra at room temperature (and higher up to 600 oC), measurements of Raman spectra at low temperatures (up to 77 K) and at room temperature but at high pressures are performed. 20 GPa). These measurements are of interest to scientists studying phase transitions of substances.
