Abstract

We have recorded high-resolution resonant Raman spectra of molecular iodine which show very pronounced systematic spectral band-shape variations with incident laser frequency. This frequency dependence and the presence of the multiple overtones in resonant Raman scattering from iodine may be explained by a theory in which the scattering intensity depends on Franck-Condon overlap integrals. We have obtained semi-quantitative agreement between the observed spectra and spectra calculated from this theory.
