Abstract

This webpage is really a series of webpages all linked together by an index which ought to be self-explanatory. Most of the items are just administrative in nature--user schedules, contact information, and such-which should not be reviewed by WERB.The technical (WERBable) sections of this webpage (*Raman scattering basics* and *Selection rules in crystals*) provide a brief theoretical introduction to the most general principles of Raman scattering in crystals, as applied to phonons. These are the classification of the Raman-active phonons by selection rule (which derives from the symmetry of the phonon) and by phonon) and by the Raman shift (which is the energy of the phonon). The small amount of real data presented is shown in the broadest light as an illustration of these two principles. An addendum explains the distinctions between Raman scattering and Brillouin scattering.
