Spin flip raman effect

  1. Feb 21, 2007 #1
    Hi guys

    Can any of you give me some info on spin-flip raman spectroscopy. I've been studying the literature on it and found its used to study diluted magnetic semiconductors (but as been used in quantum wells). Its used in these system because the effect is much more pronounced due to the sp-d coupling.

    However I'm wondering if the effect is only limited to semiconductors or if the principle is general and a zeeman shift can be measured using raman in all molecules. Is it just thatin other materials the coupling and shift is so weak at low fields and higher temperatures that it wouldn't make a recognisable shift?

    Thanks :wink:
