Is the phase difference between incident beam and reflected beam on a boundary between 2 mediums of different refractive indices ∏??

You should upgrade or use an alternative browser.

In summary, Stokes relations state that the magnitude of the reflected wave is equal to the magnitude of the incident wave multiplied by the reflection coefficient, which is equal to the ratio of the amplitude of the reflected wave to the amplitude of the incident wave. This means that the phase difference between the incident and reflected beams on a boundary between two mediums of different refractive indices is equal to pi (or 180 degrees).

These sources contain the answer to your question :

Stokes Relation is a mathematical relationship between the polarizability tensor and the Raman scattering tensor, which describes the change in polarizability of a molecule when it interacts with light.

The equation R=R' in Stokes Relation implies that the polarizability tensor and the Raman scattering tensor are symmetric and contain the same information, making it possible to calculate one from the other.

The phase difference in Stokes Relation refers to the difference in the phase of the incident light and the scattered light, which is related to the polarizability tensor and the Raman scattering tensor through the equation R=R'.

The physical interpretation of Stokes Relation is that it describes the relationship between the polarizability of a molecule and the intensity of scattered light, providing insight into the molecular structure and dynamics.

Stokes Relation is used in Raman spectroscopy to calculate the intensity of Raman scattering, which is dependent on the polarizability of the molecule. This allows for the identification and analysis of molecules based on their characteristic Raman spectra.
