Inelastic Scattering of Light from Matter: Stimulated Raman and Brillouin Scattering

  • D. L. Mills


Up until now, the discussion has assumed that the dipole moment per unit volume of a material is influenced only by application of an external electric field. The emphasis is then on the influence of the nonlinear terms in the expansion of the dipole moment per unit volume in powers of the electric field.
