XeF2 is a linear molecule with vibrational frequencies of 515 cm–1 (symmetric
stretch), 555 cm–1 (antisymmetric stretch) and 213 cm–1 (bend). A vibrational
Raman spectrum is acquired using radiation at 488 nm from an argonion
laser. Predict, with justification, which fundamental modes will be observed
and calculate the wavelengths of the associated Stokes and antiStokes lines.
I think the 515cm1 mode will be the only Raman active one. I'm not sure how to calculate the wavelengths associated with the Stokes and antiStokes lines. What equation should I use?
