Rotational Raman scattering as a source of polarized radiation for the calibration of polarization-based Thomson scattering
We discuss the use of rotational Raman scattering as a possible technique for the calibration of polarization based plasma diagnostics such as the polarimetric Thomson scattering (TS) systems
Basics of Raman Scattering (RS) Spectroscopy
Raman spectroscopy is an optical spectroscopic technique based on the inelastic scattering (called Raman scattering—RS) of light by the matter (the molecule of interest for instance). RS event occurs
Raman Scattering for Weakened Bonds in the Intermediate States of Impurity Centres
A theory of the Raman scattering in resonance with an electronic transition causing a strong softening of vibrations is proposed. In this case the potential surface of the excited state has a flat
Direct Measurement of Raman Scattering Tensor of Orientation‐Fixed Single Iodine Molecules
Raman spectroscopy is the most widely used noninvasive analytical technique. Apart from the fingerprint Raman frequency for identifying vibrational mode of certain functional groups, the Raman
Electronic-Resonance-Enhanced Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering of Nitric Oxide: Non-Perturbative Time- Dependent Modeling
[Abstract] A theoretical analysis of electronic-resonance-enhanced (ERE) coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) of NO is discussed. The time-dependent density matrix equations for the nonlinear
Quantum theory of (femtosecond) time-resolved stimulated Raman scattering.
It is shown that eight terms in perturbation theory are required to account for SRS, with observation along the probe pulse direction, and they can be grouped into four nonlinear processes which are labeled as stimulatedRaman scattering or inverse Raman scattering (IRS): SRS(I), S RS(II), IRS(I, and IRS(II).
Visualization of Vibrational Modes in Real Space by Tip-Enhanced Non-Resonant Raman Spectroscopy.
It is predicted that the vibrational motions of different Raman modes can be fully visualized in real space by tip-enhanced non-resonant Raman scattering and this study suggests a feasible approach to spatially visualize vibrational modes.
Evaluation method for Raman depolarization measurements including geometrical effects and polarization aberrations
In this article, we address the notoriously difficult problem to quantitatively link measured Raman depolarization values to theoretical polarizability tensor quantities, since quantum calculations


Developments in the Theories of Vibrational Raman Intensities
The theory of light scattering from an individual particle involving the “summation-over-states” problem of second-order perturbation theory, was offered first in 1925 by Kramers and Heisenberg1 by

Scattering of Light and the Raman Effect
A BOOK on the Raman effect, written from a physical point of view, has been badly needed for some time. Since the discovery of the effect in 1928, there have been several attempts to review and

The application of Raman scattering to molecular systems, as discussed in the previous chapters, yield a great deal of information about ground state structural, spectroscopic, and physical
High-Resolution Rotational Raman Spectra of Gases
One of the oldest applications of the Raman effect is to the study of molecular structure. By far the greatest amount of work has been and is currently being devoted to the study of liquid substances
