Slitwidth Dependence of Depolarization Ratios

Volume 29, Number 3 (June 1975) Page 230-232

Fini, Giancarlo; Mirone, Paolo

The dependence of the depolarization ratio on the slitwidth has been investigated for some polarized Raman bands. It is found that the ratio of the peak intensities depends on the slitwidth, whereas the ratio of the integrated strengths does not. This behavior is explained in a general way by considering the different contributions of the isotropic and the anisotropic spectrum to the two terms of the depolarization ratio.
