Polarization Selection Rules

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.

As an input data one should select:
  • The tensor type: Raman or Hyper-Raman.
  • The point group or the space group.
The polarization selection rules are calculated when it is chosen the Default option. If they want to be calculated in a different orientation one have to click on Orientation.

In the output of the program one can find:
  • The information about the tensors.
  • The selection rules for back scattering geometry.
  • The selection rules for right angle scattering geometry.
  • The expresions for the intensities.

1. Select the type of process you want to work with:
    Raman tensors
    Hyper-Raman tensors
2. Select the point group from the menu:

If you do not know the point group you can introduce the sequential number of the space group as it is given in International Tables for Crystallography, Vol. A or choose it:
