Dear student
 
Raman scattering and Raman effect is same.
 
When photons are scattered from an atom or molecule, most of them are elastically scattered (Rayleigh scattering), such that the scattered photons have the same energy (frequency and wavelength) as the incident photons. A small fraction of the scattered photons (approximately 1 in 10 million) are scattered inelastically by an excitation, with the scattered photons having a frequency and energy different from, and usually lower than, those of the incident photons.In a gas, Raman scattering can occur with a change in energy of a molecule due to a transition to another (usually higher) energy level. Chemists are primarily concerned with this "transitional" Raman effect
