This poster presents Raman polarisation measurements as a probe of molecular orientation in zone casted organic thin films.

Polarised Raman spectroscopy is sensitive to the molecular ordering and symmetry of sample components, therefore it gives additional information on top of the conventional Raman spectroscopy technique.

This application is of particular interest for investigations of thin-film nanomorphology since molecular alignment and packing are crucial for charge mobility.
