Abstract

The use of steady-state resonance Raman intensities to probe ultrafast dynamics in excited electronic states of molecules is discussed. The theory of resonance Raman scattering from both isolated and solvated molecules is reviewed and the information that can be obtained about both intramolecular vibrational motions and solvation dynamics is described. Applications to excited-state torsional dynamics in polyenes, solvent-induced electronic dephasing, and photodissociation dynamics in CS2 are presented.
