Abstract

The work of the previous paper is extended to consider the effect upon coherent processes of embedment of inelastic scattering molecules within small dielectric spheres. In this case the scattered radiation field is obtained in analytic form by integrating the earlier result over the particle. Unlike the case for noncoherent inelastic processes, the scattering diagrams resemble qualitatively the main features of Lorenz-Mie scattering. The implications for developing coherent Raman techniques for diagnostic purposes are clear. Quantitative chemical analysis can only be carried out if the refractive index, the ratio of particle size to exciting and emitting wavelengths, and the scattering angle are specified.
