Horizontal/vertical polarization

  1. May 22, 2005 #1
    In a Raman scattering experiment, you take two spectra using a triatomic linear molecule. One spectrum is from setting a polarizer to pass vertical polarization and the other has the polarizer set to pass horizontal polarization. What should be the difference between the two spectra? What if a molecule with a tetrahedral shape were used instead?
