Abstract : The accomplishments of this research program were twofold: (a) establish a basic Raman spectral library for materials related to solid-state tribological studies, and (b) develop a usable analytical approach for this technology in the Materials Directorate. The research was concerned with the characterization of the Raman spectra and how observed changes in these data may reflect the stress placed on a crystal structure during wear testing. This type of study is very important to further increase the understanding and applications of Raman spectroscopy to the field of tribology. This report contains a library of 51 Raman spectra obtained in the energy region 100 to 925/cm.
