Abstract

Since the discovery of the Raman effect many substances (5), (7) have been studied to determine their effect on the scattering of light. Although the Raman effect is essentially physical in nature , it comprises another means by which the behavior of atoms within molecules and the behavior of the molecules themselves may be determined independently of their state of aggregation. The discovery of the Raman effect gave new impetus to the work of the theoretical physicist and was an important factor in the rapid development ma.de in the quantum theory since the time of its discovery.
