Abstract

The symmetries of rotation–vibration states of the diatomic molecules N2 and O2 are described by means of the chain of subgroups U(4) ⊃ U(3) ⊃ O(3). The transition-matrix elements of rotational Raman scattering are calculated by means of the group-theory approach. The cross sections of rotational Raman scattering are given for N2 and O2. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental values.
