About this book

The present volume of the EMU Notes in Mineralogy series describes the "Applications of Raman Spectroscopy to Earth Sciences and Cultural Heritage". It is associated with the 12th EMU "school" co-sponsored by the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) as a "thematic school" and by the Société Française de Minéralogie et Cristallographie (SFMC).

The present volume contains chapters arising out of lectures given at this "school" which was held at the Université de Lorraine (Nancy. France) from 14-16 June 2012, immediately after the GeoRaman X meeting.

Spectroscopic methods such as Raman are used to investigate the structure and dynamics of matter. They are essential for the study of the different types of mineral or organic materials produced at the Earth's surface or interior. As a result of technological improvements in gratings, detectors, filters and personal computers in the last decade, many micro-Raman spectrometers have become plug-and-play instruments, very easy to use and available at a lower cost than the early Raman microprobes. Thus, many laboratories in Earth Sciences and Cultural Heritage are equipped with these new spectrometers. Commercial portable Raman spectrometers working in the field have also contributed to the spread of Raman spectroscopy. However, poor levels of education in terms of Raman spectroscopy in undergraduate courses in Earth Sciences make it difficult for individuals to obtain information of the highest quality relevant to Earth sciences and Cultural Heritage.

This volume addresses four main topics: theory, methodology including the instrumentation, experimental aspects, and applications.
