A discussion of the application of Raman scattering to solid state problems is followed by a description of the experimental technique. A recent experiment is described in which the thickness of the domain wall in the strongly coupled ferroelectric–ferroelastic material gadolinium molybdate is found to be within the limits 0.8–3 μ. The Raman scattering from part of the wall volume is characteristic of the high temperature paraelectric phase.
