Raman Effect

 
Raman effect or Raman scattering is popularly known as an inelastic scattering of a photon.
 
When light is scattered from an atom or molecule, most photons are elastically scattered with almost the same energy (frequency) and wavelength as the incident photons. But a small fraction of the photons is scattered by excitation. The frequency of scattered photons is lower than the frequency of the incident photons.
