Polarization Selection Rules

This program calculates the polarization selection rules for Raman and Hyper-Raman scattering processes in back scattering and right angle scattering geometries.

Back scattering geometry

One of the possible geometries which can be carried out in Raman and Hyper-Raman scattering experiments is the back scattering geometry. In this geometry, the direction of the propagation of the incident and scattered light is the same but their sense are opposite. On the other hand, the propagation and polarization of the incident and scattered light must be ortogonal:

ki = -ks

kiEi and ksEs


where kithe direction of the incident radiation; ksthe direction of the scattered radiation; Eithe direction of the polarization of the incident radiation and Esthe direction of the polarization of the scattered radiation.

Right angle scattering geometry

Right angle scattering is another possible configuration to carry out experiments in Raman and Hyper-Raman. In this geometry, the propagation and polarization of the incident and scattered light must be ortogonal:

kiEi

ksEs


where kithe direction of the incident radiation; ksthe direction of the scattered radiation; Eithe direction of the polarization of the incident radiation and Esthe direction of the polarization of the scattered radiation.
