Theory of the rotational structure of resonant Raman scattering by diatomic molecules

Optics and Spectroscopy


The apparatus of irreducible tensor operators is used to calculate the rotational structure of resonant Raman light scattering by freely rotating diatomic molecules. It is shown that solution of the problem reduces to the calculation of certain special coefficients. Their relation to the Placzek-Teller factors (which are well known in the theory of polarizability) is established. The nonzero coefficients are computed for the case when resonant rotational scattering is due to the1σ terms of the diatomic molecule.
