The electronic Raman spectrum spans the region up to a few thousand cm-1. The intensity of the peak of this quadratic continuum as well as the integrated intensity exhibit sharp increase at the critical temperature, exhibiting the formation of the Copper pairs and the resulting correlation. The Raman intensity continues to increase with decreasing temperature which indicates the continuos increase in the number of Cooper pairs.
