Abstract and Keywords
This chapter discusses how Raman spectroscopy is used to study ceramic manufactures. Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique that allows non-destructive analysis, to obtain qualitative information about the investigated samples. It is used to study the mineralogy of the clay bodies and the glassy phases of glazed ceramics. Although the technique is widely known and used, investigation of ceramics with Raman spectroscopy is a challenge due to its weak effect and the heterogeneity of the ceramic ware. Improvements and developments concerning analysis of ceramics with Raman spectroscopy are still possible, for example, in the post-analysis of the obtained Raman data.
