Expressing Raman Spectral Details Through Raman Parameter Information Diagram (RAPID)
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
used for listing spectral parameters associated with a Raman spectrum. It is demonstrated how by drawing
simple shapes like lines, triangles etc, it becomes easy to express various nding in a Raman spectrum like
red- (or blue-) shift, asymmetry, broadening, antiresonance etc. It will also be explained how by following
certain protocols, conveying Raman spectral features becomes easier unambiguously in a pictorial form,
proposed to be called as RAPID" diagram. The proposed diagram will certainly prove to be a good tool in
the eld of Raman spectroscopy. It will be noticed that, though it is proposed for Raman spectra, RAPID
diagram can be used for representing features of any spectra.
