Analysis of forgeries
Raman microanalysis can become an important tool in the forensic analysis of documents. Previously, the interference from fluorescence precluded the widespread application of Raman to this field of study. With the advent of current state-of-the-art methods for removing fluorescence and the emergence of SERS Raman as a viable and practical method for quenching fluorescence and enhancing the Raman signal, it is expected that interest and activity in this field will increase greatly.
FT-IR and Raman microscopy can effectively help to detect cases of falsification.
