From its origin in a focused beam of sunlight in the Indian city of Kolkata, Raman spectroscopy has come a long way over the last 80 years. Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman discovered that when light passes through a transparent material, some of the deflected light changes in wavelength because of inelastic scattering of photons – a phenomenon known as the Raman effect. The finding earned him the 1930 Nobel Prize in physics and has, for the most part, met the original objectives set out by Raman.
