The alteration of the frequency and the phase of light caused by scattering as the light passes through a transparent medium.
The alteration of the frequency and the phase of light as it passes through a transparent medium. The Raman effect is caused by small differences between the energy of photons absorbed by the molecules that make up the medium and the energy of photons re-emitted.
