General Notation for Polarized Raman Scattering from Gases, Liquids, and Single Crystals

Volume 27, Number 5 (Oct. 1973) Page 382-385

Swanson, Basil I.

A completely general notation for polarized Raman scattering from gases, solutions, liquids, and single crystals is presented. This notation can be used to describe scattering from single crystals where more general crystallographic directions are employed. Scattering experiments where nonpolarized incident light is used, or where both polarization components of scattered light are observed, can also be labeled. Single crystal scattering efficiencies are discussed in terms of the generalized notation.
