Polarization spectroscopy as a probe of Raman optical activity

Abstract

Polarization-sensitive coherent antistokes Raman spectroscopy and the Raman-induced Kerr effect are considered as possible techniques for investigating Raman optical activity. Generalized nonlinear optical susceptibilities including both magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole interactions are derived semiclassically. These terms can be distinguished from electric dipole terms through their particular symmetry, and several polarization configurations are discussed which seem appropriate to the study of Raman optical activity. These might constitute a convenient alternative to the conventional technique of circular differential Raman scattering for measuring this property.
