Application of Raman Spectroscopy on asbestos fibre identification

Rinaudo, C.; Gastaldi, D.; Belluso, E.; Capella, S.

Abstract

This study shows that Raman micro-spectroscopy is a simple and accurate method of detecting and identifying asbestos fibres in synthetic cement. The crystalline phases detected by Raman spectroscopy were confirmed by comparing them with results obtained using more commonly used techniques: XRPD, SEM-EDS and TEM-EDS.
