Effect of Layer Number and Crystal Stacking Orientation on the Raman Spectra of Two-Dimensional MoS2

March 01, 2020

Raman imaging provides detailed crystal orientation information for twodimensional MoS2 prepared by chemical vapor deposition on silicon substrates. These two-dimensional crystals consist of individual atomic layers of sulfur, molybdenum, and sulfur atoms.

Raman Thermometry: Understanding the Mathematics to Better Design Raman Measurements

December 01, 2019

Raman measurements can be used to infer the temperature of a material based on the Stokes and anti-Stokes band signal strengths, and by applying a predefined mathematical relationship. In reality, the temperature, Raman shift, and laser excitation wavelength all interact, and should be considered to better understand these measurements.
