Polarized Raman Scattering: A Powerful Tool for Characterization of Orientation
Dr. Bruce Chase will discuss the following subjects during his presentation:

Interaction of light with molecules
• Polarized light dynamic electric fields
• Vibrating molecules: electrons in motion

Infrared absorption
• Vibrating dipoles and electric fields

Raman scattering
• Moving electrons and polarizable clouds

Basis of polarized Raman measurements
• Uniaxial symmetry and scattering in three directions
• Full study of fibers with P2 and P4

Simplification of rigorous method by assumptions
• Knowledge of depolarization ratio
• Assumption of symmetry in Raman cross-section
• ZZ versus YY measurements

Examples of polarized Raman results for fibers

Issues with polarization
• Pitfalls and problems
