Raman spectroscopy is used to identify different molecules and even functional groups within larger molecules. The bonds formed between atoms have specific vibrational frequencies that correspond to the atom's masses and the strength of the bond between them. Complex molecules therefore exhibit many peaks and can be readily identified by the pattern or "fingerprint" created by those peaks. As such, there are many uses for micro Raman spectrometers as they can non-destructively identify microscopic samples or microscopic areas of larger samples.
