Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 2016, 47, 1–141.
Siva Umapathy et al.

It has been 88 years since the discovery of the phenomena when Sir Chandraseka  V. Raman and K. S. Krishnan reported a new type of secondary radiation in nature, which was named after Sir Chandraseka. Little had they known that this would become a momentous discovery in physics. Raman spectroscopy (RS) has transcended all its barriers and has emerged as a technology that has touched lives in all its hues. This spectroscopic technique in all its avatars has proven to be a useful tool that can be applied in all the areas ranging from materials to medicine and can be reckoned as a serious contender among all the other analytical tools. The year 2015, which was declared as the International Year of Light by the UN General Assembly, celebrates research on light science and its applications; what could have been more befitting than to have a special Journal of Raman Spectroscopy issue that is dedicated to the advances in RS and its various facets. This issue takes the readers through the various review articles encompassing Raman spectroscopic applications to materials, forensics, biology, art and archaeology. In addition, review articles on the offshoots of RS such as SERS, UV resonance Raman and coherent RS have also been presented. The compiled articles for this special issue have been contributed by the groups that have been working in the niche areas of Raman research. They are the authorities in their respective areas and have published large volumes of their work in peer-reviewed journals. It is anticipated that these review articles shall be of immense importance for readers who want to further their knowledge in a particular topic.
