Although the Raman effect was discovered nearly 80 years ago, it is only recently that the special characteristics of Raman scattering for one-dimensional systems have been seriously considered. This review focuses on the special interest of the Raman effect for one-dimensional systems that is of particular relevance to carbon nanostructures. Two examples of Raman scattering in one-dimensional systems are given. The first illustrates the use of Raman spectroscopy to reveal the remarkable structure and properties of carbon nanotubes arising from their one-dimensionality. Some of the recent advances in using Raman spectroscopy to study doping and intercalation to modify nanotube properties are reviewed, in the context of a one-dimensional system. The second example is the Raman spectra of a linear chain of carbon atoms and the special properties of this interesting system. New approaches toward applying Raman spectroscopy to carbon nanostructures are also emphasized.
