Raman spectra of minerals acquired at Caltech.
The spectra in the Caltech Raman database are now incorporated into the RRUFF project,
a combined database with 3375 spectra.
spectra acquired at Caltech (the original on-line database of
Raman spectra of minerals) - most are crystallographically
oriented; many have chemical analyzes.

University of Arizona-Caltech-Contributed Spectra. (3375 spectra - and
growing weekly). ASCII data, chemical analyses, XRD patterns, pictures
of samples, images of the spectra, oriented and unoriented samples.
A combined database from the Société
Minéralogie et de Cristallographie (542 spectra). PDF files
and inorganic materials posted at the National Institute of Advanced
Industrial Science and Technology, Nagoya, Japan. (576 mineral spectra
- 892 inorganic materials, literature references). PDF images of the spectra
and pictures of samples, unoriented samples.
spectra collected at the Physics Department of the University
of Parma, Italy. (195 spectra). on-web images of spectra,
database (including minerals) from University College,
London, England. GIF images of spectra and datafiles in SPC format.
spectra posted at the Ecole Normale Supérieure,
Lyon, France. (>60 minerals + synthetics and glasses). ASCII
data, PDF images of spectra.

- Raman spectra and photos
of minerals from Queensland University of Technology. A sparse
collection of pictures of Raman spectra with many pictures of minerals.
Software. A software package used to identify unknown
minerals from their Raman spectrum with an extensive mineral database
from the RRUFF
project. It is also capable of analyzing and manipulating
both Raman and powder diffraction data sets.
