Raman scattering in magnetic materials

  • R. A. Yadav
Special Issue on Raman Spectroscopy and its Applications


The new selection rules formulated for gyrotropic materials in presence of the Faraday Rotation by earlier workers are critically examined in the light of the work of Slobodyanyuk and Schaack. It is argued that it is difficult to distinguish between the two effects, namely, the position dependence (size effect) and phase dependence (interference effect) causing intensity anomalies in Raman scattering.
